Product Description

Review

A hilarious, shocking, sad story... a brilliant book. -- Kingsley Amis

Its strength lies in its understanding of Thomas's roots in a particular West Wales culture - 'haunted, ingrowing, ill-fated. -- The Scotsman

Thomas' best biographer -- London Review of Books

From the Inside Flap

Dylan Thomas died, amid alcohol and debts, in New York at the age of thirty-nine. He was, even then, a figure fabled for his dissolute lifestyle and dazzlingly original poetry. Many have tried to disentangle the style from the substance, the man from the myth, but none more successfully than Paul Ferris. His sympathetic biography has established itself as the one essential and unsurpassed work on Dylan Thomas' life. This edition includes a new introduction.

I read an early edition of this in my early 20s. It caught hold of my imagination and wouldn't let go. I'm delighted by this new edition with extra material. The best Dylan Thomas biography and a fascinating read.
