Journal Entry 1 by wingpippiswing from Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Saturday, April 30, 2022
This collection of the poet Dylan Thomas's fiction–and what an extraordinary storyteller he was!–holds special interest because it ranges from the early stories such as "The School for Witches" and "The Burning Baby," with their powerful inheritance of Welsh mythology and wild imagination, to the chapters he completed before his death of the alas unfinished novel Adventures in the Skin Trade. Adventures is the story, written in a shrewd, sly, deadpan vein of picaresque comedy, of young Samuel Bennet, who runs away from his home in Wales to seek his fortune in London.

Thanks! My very own heavenly father i.e. late Dad must be laughing out loud now. He liked Dylan Thomas and tried to educate me by playing his record of Dylan Thomas himself reading Under Milk Wood. I had no clue of what was said. On hindsight I thought it might have had something to do with my young age, but I googled Under Milkwood and was lost again after a couple of sentences. Let's see if I manage better with this one. The blurb calls him a genious of comic writing, so my hopes are high.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Fathers and daughters are not alike.
A friend of mine took the book with her to Portugal. Her 86-year-old mother had to go to ER due to constant nose bleed and Dylan was left in the hospital. Mother OK.
