When Aeronwy was six, her parents Dylan and Caitlin Thomas moved to the boathouse at the edge of the small Welsh village Laugharne. Through a child's eye, she recalls the chaos and joy of living with Dylan Thomas while the poet was at the height of his creative powers, composing Under Milk Wood . Through a series of beautifully evocative episodes, village and family life are explored. Emerging from the narrative, Aeronwy tells a moving memoir of growing up in Wales in the 1940s and a new portrait of Dylan Thomas as a father from the only person who could tell that story. This literary sensation includes never-before-seen photos of Dylan Thomas and his family, will get widespread attention, and features personalities like Augustus John, A.J.P. Taylor, as well as the villagers who would eventually be transformed into the characters from Llareggub.
