Beneath the respectable of Wales, with its patriarchal religion, Caradoc's stories exposed greed and corruption, domestic and sexual violence. "My Neighbours" (1920) focused on the London-Welsh business world with its equation of godliness with piety and worldly success. Besides drama and irony, his later work catches the spirit of folk tale. His language is an blend of Bible phrasing and literal renderings from the Welsh, producing an English strange on the tongue, and precisely embodying his imaginative world. This collection gathers work from all periods, including "Capel Sion" and "My Neighbours", long out of print.
