Tony Bianchi dies aged 65

We are saddened to have the news that author Tony Bianchi has passed away. A novelist in Welsh and English, a cultural commentator and administrator of rare clarity and incisiveness, Tony's contribution to the literatures of Wales will be long remembered and much valued. A warm and generous man, Tony was also a great campaigner for political causes of the left. Many of us will particularly remember his involvement in the Wales Anti-Apartheid Movement. A Geordie fluent in Welsh, a climber, a beautiful pianist, Tony's was a multi-talented life for which the term 'polymath' might have been invented. We'll miss him.
