Dylan Thomas' and Caitlin's life together is fascinating in the same way a train . Unfortunately, Caitlin tries to write in the style of Thomas although she hasn't the talent. Read Double Drink and the rest for the whole story.
Dylan Thomas' and Caitlin's life together is fascinating in the same way a train accident would be and the drama is not so far removed. While Dylan was the true poet, she is, by far, the more interesting character. She is most effective when she writes a direct, simple sentence. Nevertheless, she conveys her message, although I believe she was still enjoying the "double-drinks" when this book was written. There are huge gaps in her stories.
Caitlin Thomas (née Macnamara; 8 December 1913 – 31 July 1994) was an author and the wife of the poet and writer Dylan Thomas. Their marriage was a stormy affair, fuelled by alcohol and infidelity, though the couple remained together until Dylan's death in 1953. She paints a picture of a grieving widow seeking solace in distance, a younger lover, and alcohol.
From the moment they met at a pub in London, drink was the most conspicuous part of the lives of Caitlin and her 'genius poet', Dylan Thomas. It fuelled their sexual adventures, lessened their shyness and enriched their social life. This searing book is Caitlin's story of the passions, the rage and the tragic humour of those years of drink and the toll it took on the lives of two talented people, leaving one of them dead at the age of thirty-nine, and the other alone, penniless and an alcoholic.
