About the Author
Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea in 1914. After leaving school he worked briefly as a junior reporter on the South Wales Evening Post before deciding to embark on a freelance literary career. He rapidly established himself as a remarkable personality and one of the finest poets of his generation. 18 Poems appeared in 1934, Twenty-five Poems in 1936, Deaths and Entrances in 1946 and In Country Sleep in 1952. His Collected Poems was published in 1952. Throughout his life, Thomas also wrote short stories, his most famous collection being Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog. He also wrote film scripts, was a celebrated broadcaster of radio features and talks, lectured widely in America, and wrote the radio play Under Milk Wood, first broadcast posthumously in 1954.
Andrew Sinclair has studied or taught at Cambridge, Harvard, Stanford and Columbia Universities. He has been a publisher and a film director (his film of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood, starring Peter O'Toole, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton is also a classic) and has written many successful novels. He is the author of a number of historical works including Prohibition: The Era of Excess and The Better Half: The Emancipation of the American Woman as well as Dylan the Bard, a biography of Dylan Thomas, and biographies of Warren G. Harding, Jack London, J. P. Morgan and John Ford.
