Editorial Reviews

Saturday Review
He reads his verse and his prose with such melodious power, with such subtly and ardently projected rhythms, that ones feels that, good as it is, his poetry on the printed page is dull in comparison.
Harper's Magazine
The long, poetic, autobiographical A Child's Christmas in Wales is, to use a cliche in its exact sense, an unforgettable experience in the listening: surely this Christmas story ranks (in its spoken form, at least) among the great expressions of the language..
New York Times
There is so much music in his voice that it carries the listener along, enchanted by the sound of the words and the rich imagery.

    Living a CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES

    This lovely, sensitive interpretation of Dylan Thomas's poem is loyal to the original, but adds appropriate dialogue and a wonderland of touching pictures and characters. We have viewed it for the first time and are drawn into the film at every new frame. It seems just right for all ages and makes one quite nostalgic for the days of our youth and those special times with family and friends when small towns and simple acts meant love was every where around us. We recommend it.

    This is a very poor Nook adaptation. Very hard to read.
