Review: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog

User Review  - Sheila Francis - Goodreads

I was engaged by this collection mostly because I'm interested in Dylan Thomas and in the historical context of these stories.

User Review  - Maria Longley - Goodreads

Ten evocative short stories make up this autobiographical account - or "inspired by a true story" type of autobiography? I don't know enough to know, but it doesn't really matter. 'The Peaches' really ... Read full review

User Review  - Miriam Wakerly - Goodreads

Enjoyed the rich language, vignettes and cameos of Dylan Thomas life, more interesting than a 'this happened and then this' chronological account of life. Tied in well with recent TV viewing of Tom Hollander's great performance as Dylan. Read full review

I'd already read 'Peaches' for O'level so I was keen to read more but remember finding this disappointing - overly flowery for the sake of it. Read full review

Review: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog

User Review  - Eric Hinkle - Goodreads

Dylan Thomas wrote stories exactly the way I would like to write: witty, playful, wonderfully and unusually descriptive, and poetic as heck. Chiefly known as a poet, it makes sense that he spends way ... Read full review

Not yet, have I ventured into the mysterious world of poetry seriously. I've read some John Donne and read some to and fro. But this 'autobiography' of one of the English language's most important ... Read full review
