About William Rees

Bill Rees lives between Bangor and Montpelier, and makes his self-proclaimed 'precarious' living by translating French football matches into English for a Dutch bookmaker, as well as selling the occasional book. As a graduate of Bangor University, Rees worked as a reporter for a local newspaper in London, before the lure of travel and bookselling led him to take a less conventional road. His experiences of bookselling in Wales and France culminated in the creation of The Loneliness of a Long Distance Book Runner, an idiosyncratic tale of friendship and travel, published by Parthian in October 2011.
