By RR Waller TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 6 Sept. 2011
Format: Paperback
Admirers of Thomas' poetry will both love and hate this book. Beginning in June 1950, just as he continued to break new ground and his poetry found new, admiring audiences, his life took disastrous turns. On the 9th November 1953, he slipped away, "gently into that good night"; drink and careless living had taken their tragic, unremitting toll.

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 Perhaps it is apocryphal; the young-face, gnome like portrait of his early publicity pictures had been replaced by another less pleasant, less admirable and certainly more human picture.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.

Although Brinin's Dylan somewhat tries to create a mythology of "the great poet" (which he was regardless) Brinin's prose to quite entertaining.
