When Aeronwy was 6, 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 comes to life from the only person who could tell that story. This book will get widespread attention and be considered a literary sensation with a cast of characters such as Augustus John, A.J.P. Taylor, as well as the villagers who would be transformed into the characters from Llareggub.
