A special gift edition of Dylan Thomas's most famous work, published to coincide with the centenary of his birth, with an introduction by Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Dylan Thomas was born in Swansea on 27 October 1914, the son of a senior English master. On leaving school he worked on the SOUTH WALES EVENING POST before embarking on his literary career in London. Not only a poet, he wrote short stories, film scripts, features and radio plays, the most famous being UNDER MILK WOOD. On 9 November 1953, shortly after his 39th birthday, he collapsed and died in New York City. In 1982 a memorial stone to commemorate him was unveiled in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey.
