Review quote

"Offers a portrait of the artist as a young, drunken, self-destructive man . . . and a colorful and poignant tale." "Time "Lycett is balances and fair-minded . . . [and] provides us with a portrait of a man to whom creating poetry was as natural as drawing breath . . . solid research, skillful organization and colorful anecdote." Los Angeles Times "Lycett peels back new layers of the life of a great poet." San Antonio Express-News "Hail the rock 'n' rill poet . . . his genius lay in living like that while producing poems of deep lyrical intensity." The Telegraph "[on the occasion of the 2014 Dylan Thomas centenary]"show more
