Dylan: The Nine Lives of Dylan Thomas

By Jonathan Fryer

This is Jonathan Fryer’s startling reappraisal of Wales’s most famous twentieth-century poet, Dylan Thomas.

Dylan Thomas has long been a subject of fascination and controversy. Indulgent friends would describe him as an eccentric whose defiance of social convention was a natural extension of his over-fertile imagination. Others were blunter, calling him a liar, a scrounger, a coward and a thief.

In this refreshingly honest biography, Jonathan Fryer draws on many new sources, including close friends and relatives, and recently-discovered letters and memoirs. His portrait highlights the complexities and paradoxes of Thomas’s character, but also shows just what it was about the man that could inspire such devotion from his many loyal patrons and admirers.
