Living life to the full is one way to express it, although many would disagree with that version of "living" and "fullness", he seemed to personify the artistic type. Images of him backstage, reeling in intoxicate fervour and stage fright, only to straighten as he walked to the microphone to begin another wonderful reading of his intoxicating language is one Thomas fans will know from other books. Perhaps it is apocryphal; the young-face, gnome like portrait of his early publicity pictures had been replaced by another less pleasant, less admirable and certainly more human picture. This book, written by someone who knew him well and accompanied him on these American tours, will dispel some of the myths, leaving one with the question so often asked about artist of all kinds; separated from what killed him, would his art have been the same or did his art need what killed him?
Recommended but gruelling in places.
