    One thought on “Dylan: The Nine Lives of Dylan Thomas

    1. Sam

      A very interesting insight into the life of Dylan Thomas both as a poet and as a husband and father. Fryer has obviously spent a lot of time studying both Thomas's life and work as he delves into the entertaining chaos of Dylan's life and his ultimate death. Fryer shows every side of Dylan from the good to the bad and all that falls in between while still producing a readable account of his life. This is a very candid book and one that held a few surprises concerning Wales' favourite poet.

    2. Sheila Francis

      Dylan Thomas was an angel with words and a devil in almost every other way. I knew this before but learned a few more sordid details from this book.
