About

“I write,” is the simplest and most obvious way to put it.

The other way is: My name is Iaian. I’m told that’s the Gaelic-Welsh way to spell it. Anywho, I’m a pseudo-intellectual, wannabe novelist who splits his time between writing shorts (which mostly go up on this site), reading all types of books, and consuming a wide eclectic range of music, whilst trying get this novel published.

Here at “Writings and Letters,” you’ll find mostly fiction, and the occasional non-fiction. Subjects I find myself returning to time and time again are: history (or the way we perceive the past), capitalism (from a critical POV), linguistics (or more so how language both helps and hinders society), the usual culture war-type subjects: feminism, racism, sexual orientation, general existentialism, music and movie reviews, and all the rest of it.

To paraphrase Philip Roth, who paraphrased Chekhov: “A writer’s job is to make a proper presentation of the problem.” With any bit of luck, that’s what I do with my writing.
