A Great Little Stocking Filler!

Another book group choice, this time for our Christmas discussion with afternoon tea by a huge log fire in a country hotel. No one reads Dylan Thomas better than the man himself and here he is reminiscing his own childhood Christmas in his Wales homeland. People of a certain age will find plenty to smile about and identify with, wherever they grew up. Nice and short, it is possible to suffer from Dylan Thomas overload but not here. There follows more of his poems including what is perhaps his best known, and in my opinion, finest delivery - Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night.
