Publisher Description

In print for fifty years, this gem of lyric prose has enchanted both young and old from its very first edition.

Dylan Thomas, one of the greatest poets and storytellers of the twentieth century, captures a child's-eye view, and an adult's fond memories, of a magical time of presents, aunts and uncles, the frozen sea, and in the best of circumstances, newly fallen snow.

Ranks With Dickens

This short tale of Thomas’ childhood memories is one of the finest pieces on Christmas ever written. It has all of Thomas’ evocative imagery, is full of sentimental scenes, is never difficult to understand like some of his complex poems, and is redolent of mulled spices and old things. Its purity and simplicity are its greatest charms. Even if you have never experienced memorable holiday seasons, A Child’s Christmas in Wales is so rich, it will make you think you have. The memories will seem your own, and you will think, “yes, of course that happened, I remember it like it was yesterday.”
