Publisher's Summary

Under Milk Wood is Dylan Thomas's undisputed and unforgettable masterpiece - an affectionate, but hilarious portrait of a small Welsh town. The classic 1954 recording, featuring a perfect cast led by Richard Burton as "First Voice", is rightly considered to be definitive. This collection also includes two earlier radio programs: Return Journey to Swansea and Quite Early One Morning, read by Dylan Thomas and others. Enjoyable in their own right, they also provide a fascinating insight into the process that led towards Under Milk Wood.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Beautifully Read

This book is an absolute classic from Wales' own Dylan Thomas. It is beautifully read by Richard Burton, who really brings the colours, smells and innermost feelings of the people who are embroiled in the storyline to life; you feel like you are there seeing it for yourself.

If you only buy one Dylan Thomas book, buy this one; you won't be disappointed.

If that wasn't enough, there are other stories and poems that are included with this download, so you get even better value for your money!
