Overview

Adventures in the Skin Trade

Quite Early One Morning

and Other Peoms

Remastered from the original BBC broadcast recordings the stories of Dylan Thomas presented here are wild and sweet and cocky—as the man and child were. His technique is impressionistic, piling on the sights and smells and sounds experience by one rough-and-tumble Welsh lad with miraculous awareness of the wonder of things. Throughout his short life, Dylan Thomas dipped continually into his own childhood for his poetry.

Thomas' hilarious, semi-autobiographical novel Adventures in the Skin Trade about a young man's first trip to the big city was recorded at the Poetry Center of the 92nd Street YM-YWHA in New York City.

This audio reproduces the full sound spectrum of the historic recordings; it has been remastered using contemprary digital equipment.
