Neon roses
Eluned Hughes is stuck. It's 1984 in a valley in south Wales: the miners' strike is ravaging her community, her sister's swanned off with a Thatcherite policeman and her boyfriend Lloyd keeps bringing up marriage. From the Valleys to the nightclubs of Cardiff, this is a heartwarming, funny and a little bit filthy queer coming-of-age story with a cracking '80s soundtrack.
