Описание в каталоге

"...This flat English country levels the intelligence, planes down the imagination, narrows the a's, my ears belch up old wax and misremembered passages of misunderstood music, I sit and hate my mother-in-law, glowering at her from corners and grumbling about her in the sad, sticky, quiet of the lavatory..."

Charles Fisher (1914-2006) had known Thomas since their schooldays at Swansea Grammar School, and the two had been part of the same literary and artistic set in Swansea in the early 1930s. Fisher was a promising poet, worked alongside Thomas on the South Wales Evening Post, and also wrote for BBC Radio. Dylan and Caitlin Thomas's son, Llewelyn, was born on 30 January.
