Heads up for people interested in Welsh.

David Edwards from Datblygu has written an autobiography in Welsh. It's only available on the UK amazon or from the publishers, but amazon lets you order internationally anyway. If you're not familiar with David R. Edwards, he's the singer and lyricist of the Welsh language post-punk band Datblygu. They were one of John Peel's favourites, and known for their experimental sounds and clever literary lyrics filled with bilingual Welsh-English wordplay and complete scorn for patriotic nonsense. Dave Edwards worked as a school Welsh teacher and for the tourist board, had a few nervous breakdowns, became an alcoholic and recovered and all kinds of turmoil, so it looks like an interesting book.
