Table of Contents:
Since becoming National Poet of Wales, Ifor ap Glyn has sought to connect with a wider audience in Wales and further afield. This is the first time that a representative selection of his work has appeared in a parallel text with English translation. 

Cuddle Call? includes some of the poet’s famous performance pieces as well as the more sophisticated collections which won him the Eisteddfod Crown in 1999 and 2013. His poems explore Wales and the wider world, celebrating the richness of the Welsh language in all its trials and tribulations.
Further Information:
Ifor was brought up in London but now lives in Caernarfon. Introductory essays by Ian Rowlands and the author himself, provide context to the poems.
'Publishing a bilingual volume such as this is an important step in the process of sharing experiences in both languages...'
– Welsh Books Council Reader's report
'The incendiary work in this volume burns with a deeper complexity; napalm poetry.
- Ian Rowlands
' The selected poems aptly demonstrate the development of ap Glyn’s poetic voice over three decades and more, and show how his poetry has reacted not only to events of personal importance, but to those of national, and international, significance too.'
– Welsh Books Council Reader's report
