The authorized biography of the wife of Dylan Thomas, a story of a productive but doomed relationship, and of promiscuity and scandal among the artistic community of Fitzrovia. Among literary wives this century few have been as vivid and influential as Caitlin Macnamara, the Irishwoman who married Dylan Thomas. Caitlin had an unshakeable conviction in her own talents - first as a dancer, later as a writer. This biography shows both the extent of Thomas's dependence on her, and how, as their marriage collapsed, her despairing promiscuity helped to destroy him. After his death from alcohol and morphia in 1953, she was free to become the artist in her own right that she had so long hankered for. Her subsequent life as a writer, alcoholic and wandering widow is told with the help of her uninhibited letters, perhaps her best literary monument, and unpublished manuscripts, as well as many conversations with Caitlin, her family and her circle.
