A parallel translation in Welsh and English, this is a deeply felt, lyrical account of Kate Roberts' childhood in the virtually monoglot community that earned its living from the slate quarries of North Wales at the end of the 19th century. The English translation by the poet Gillian Clarke, with its litany of Welshisms, demands to be read in a Welsh accent.

Asked if he will be getting Rebekah Wade to take part in his new “interactive online audio service” SunTalk, Jon Gaunt is uniequivocal. “She’s not an entertainer, what would she be coming on for?

The premise of Wesley Stace's anarchic and funny second novel may come across as a bit of a mouthful, but it's a virtuoso performance. The book concerns the histories of two Georges – one is an 11-year-old public schoolboy, the other his ventriloquist grandfather's dummy.

I have mixed feelings about plundering a bygone era of light entertainment for comic material, and yet two Fringe performers do this immensely well, Justin Edwards as the alcoholic children's entertainer, Jeremy Lion and Steve Delaney as another sozzled old has-been, Count Arthur Strong. There's a bittersweet feeling to watching these fictional, and very similar, performers of yesteryear variety bumble their way through their shows. I would liken the experience to that of watching Paul Whitehouse's Rowley Birkin QC in The Fast Show, for a more widely-known reference point, but with more jokes and levity.

After almost two years of non-stop touring, you'd think that Cansei de Ser Sexy really would be tired of being so sexy. Having seen the Sao Paulo electro-rock sextet (whose name translates, of course, as "I'm tired of being sexy") several times before, I doubted that the band would have the usual sugar-rush enthusiasm to pull out the stops. But at their headline NME show in London, CSS showed no signs of letting up.
