Amazon Synopsis

Dylan Thomas - better as a short story writer than a poet?, 2 October, 2001
Reviewer: (peter.beynon61@btinternet.com) from Carmarthenshire Wales
When Dylan Thomas read James Joyce's 'Dubliners' he was overcome by the the Irishman's realistic but poetic visions of his fellow men and the community in which they lived. Could the Welshman match the Nobel winner's prose? Yes. We are all aware of Thomas's rich, oblique apocalyptic poetry, his revolutionary play for voices 'Under milk wood', but strangely the oft-neglected short stories carry some of his richest, funniest and most moving writings. In self-effacing homage he based the title on Joyce's 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man', and subsequently delved into the South Walian psyche with a love of the language and its people that, once read will never be forgotten. Was he a better story writer than poet? On this evidence - Yes.

Dylan was a hardcore alcoholic. Wake up and take a shot of whisky, then go to the pub... He wrote some damn good prose though.
