Aberystwyth Boy contains fourteen stories that range from the light and humorous to the sombre, even tragic. Seen through the eyes of an unsophisticated teenage boy who may not fully comprehend all that he observes, the stories are a study of character and relationships based on the author's own experiences.

Set in rural West Wales in the 1950s and 60s, the events described are often dramatic, shaping the lives of the author, his family and school friends. The book features a cast of well-rounded and accessible characters, some of whom appear in several stories. Key figures include the author's brother and an uncle, both of whom face challenges that test them to their limits.

The collection was initially published by a Welsh publishing house and was well received. That edition is now out of print. There is one additional tale in this second edition, making fourteen stories in all.
