AMERICA, AERONWY, AND ME / DYLAN THOMAS TRIBUTE TOUR America, Aeronwy, and Me is a commemorative book of my tour with Aeronwy Thomas, daughter of Dylan Thomas, in 2008, when we embarked on the Dylan Thomas Tribute Tour of America for a busy six weeks of events.

Of the many books I have read about Dylan Thomas, ‘My Father’s Places’ by his daughter Aeronwy, Hannah’s late mother, is undoubtedly one of the finest, being not only a valuable biography/autobiography but also an excellent work of literature. It is wonderfully well written, describing scenes and stories from the poet’s tempestuous life with a [...]

“Feet up with cup of tea BUT it is bloody hot.” This was a text from my dad last Tuesday and I have had similar moans and groans from: my husband, my son, on the school run – there was even a grumble fest about the warm weather on Radio 5’s Your Call. I have [...]

Mothering Sunday is always a strange day, as those of you that have lost a parent will understand.

However this year I took a slightly different tact and decided to put time aside to [...]

As I was digging through my dad’s bookshelves (I often take a peek when I visit and ‘borrow’ a volume or two), which are overloaded with books by and about Dylan Thomas I came across a thin pink book, it’s more a pamphlet actually, called Christmas and Other Memories by Aeronwy Thomas. It’s an absolutely [...]
