Jones's first novel takes place over the course of a hot summer day on a cattle farm somewhere in rural Wales.

In the aching cold where night bumps into day, Hold hears noises that indicate he isn't alone. Out at the edge of his nets a rudderless dinghy is thumping against the rocks, prey to the ebbing tide. What he finds there changes everything. Grzegorz works hard, no time for rest, just work, more work and little thanks. All he needs is a hand up, one break, one chance. When it comes, with no apparent strings attached, what can he do but take it? The Big Man knows only one kind of life, but it's leaving him behind and he's struggling to keep up, longing for the days when all you needed were a code of honour and a reputation
Bird, blood, snow by Cynan Jones( file )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
Hoping to give him a better start in life, Peredur's mother takes him from the estates. But when local kids cycle into his life he heads off after them, accompained by the notion of finding Arthur - an absent, imaginary guardian. And that's when the trouble really starts. The original Peredur fights for recognition in Arthur's court. Cynan Jones turns this into a modern Quixotian romp
The dig by Cynan Jones( Book )
5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Welsh and held by 92 libraries worldwide
"Jones's sense of place is acute, and his passion for the landscape-for its colors, its creatures, its textures, its scents-is absolutely magnetic."-Sarah Waters "A dark, tense, and vital short novel. Profound, powerful, and utterly absorbing."-The Guardian" It is a book about the essentials: life and death, cruelty and compassion. It is a book that will get in your bones, and haunt you."-Daily Telegraph" Cynan Jones's fourth novel, The Dig, is an extraordinarily powerful work-not in spite of its brevity but because of it. In its marriage of profound lyricism and feeling for place, deep human compassion and unflinching savagery, this brief and beautiful novel is utterly unique."-Financial TimesBuilt of the interlocking fates of a badger-baiter and a farmer struggling through lambing season, The Dig unfolds in a stark rural setting where man, animal, and land are at loggerheads. There is no bucolic pastoral here: this is pure, pared-down rural realism, crackling with compressed energy, from a writer of uncommon gifts. Cynan Jones was born near Aberaeron, Wales, in 1975. He is the author of three novels, The Long Dry (winner of a Betty Trask Award, 2007), Everything I Found on the Beach (2011), and The Dig (2014), winner of the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize. He is also the author of Bird, Blood, Snow (2012), the retelling of a medieval Welsh myth. The Dig is his first novel published in the United States"--
