Sneak preview: Dan Y Wenallt (Under Milk Wood)

Feb 07, 2014

Just gone to print at Gwasg Gomer – Dan Y Wenallt, a new adaptation (the fourth) of Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood by T. James Jones. It was good to work again with editor Luned Whelan, and all the stops were pulled out to make a classic new edition of this wonderful book. As well as a great new foreword by Walford Davies, the book also contains a unique collection of photos of Laugharne which I discovered in the National Library of Wales’ digital archives. Taken by Geoff Charles in the 1950’s, not long after Dylan Thomas had died, they evoke for me a dream-like feeling – as if the town itself is somewhere between sleep and waking. See what you think when the book is published on St David’s Day. Rebecca
