A Child's Calendar by John Updike Summary

"...This read-along is a richly sensory experience.... sound effects of chirping birds, tromping feet, lowing cows, whirring insects, exploding fireworks, pounding surf, buzzing bees, barking dogs, honking geese, and tolling bells create their own aural metaphors that echo the poet's verse and clearly reflect the seasons." -Booklist

A Child's Christmas in San Francisco by John Briscoe Summary

At the core of A Child's Christmas in San Francisco are seven poems, composed, author John Briscoe tells us, by generations of San Francisco school children. Over the week before Christmas these children paired iconic San Francisco food and drink with the days of the week. Each day got a poem featuring a particular food or beverage. In this way, Briscoe observes, the young poets showed "a precocious affection for the culinary tradition and abiding spirits of Christmas in their City of St. Francis."Briscoe was one of those children. "For the occasion of those seven days, we composed ditties of juvenilia, in verse from bad to worse, to celebrate the days of the week and their paired food or beverage soulmates. From Sutro Heights to South Beach, from Bernal Heights to the Bayview, we composed, and competed, and conceded to the best of us."These then are the best productions of San Francisco's youthful versifiers. They are sly and surprisingly sophisticated comic verses that bring to life a forgotten San Francisco, one spiced with wicked innocence and fueled by the city's unique culinary offerings. Like the season it recalls, this book is celebration, a feast that is guaranteed to delight.This book is for people who have affection for San Francisco, particularly its food, drink or history; people who don't know San Francisco but have been enchanted by films, books, or legends of San Francisco; and people who enjoy whimsy for whimsy's sake.The title of this little book is unabashedly borrowed from Dylan Thomas's delighting story, "Á Child's Christmas in Wales," which is best taken in by listening to Thomas himself reading it on the BBC. This little book is a bit of history of San Francisco, history that is inconsequential in light of the city's role in the California gold rush of 1849, in light of the city's destruction and rebirth in 1906, in light of the city's role in the creation of the United Nations and in the Treaty of Peace with Japan following World War II.

The Three Lives of Dylan Thomas by Hilly Janes Summary

Dylan Thomas was one of the most extraordinary poetic talents of the twentieth century. Poems such as 'Do not go gentle into that good night' regularly top polls of the nation's favourites and his much-loved play Under Milk Wood has never been out of print. Thomas lived a life that was rarely without incident and died a death that has gone down in legend as the epitome of Bohemian dissoluteness. In The Three Lives of Dylan Thomas, journalist Hilly Janes explores that life and its extraordinary legacy through the eyes of her father, the artist Alfred Janes, who was a member of Thomas's inner circle and painted the poet at three key moments: in 1934, 1953 and, posthumously, 1964. Using these portraits as focal points, and drawing on a personal archive that includes drawings, diaries, letters and new interviews with omas's friends and descendants, The Three Lives of Dylan Thomas plots the poet's tempestuous journey from his birthplace in Swansea to his early death in a New York hospital in 1953. In this innovative and powerful narrative, Hilly Janes paints her own portrait: one that ventures beneath Thomas's reputation as a feckless, disloyal, boozy Welsh bard to reveal a much more complex character.

Dylan by Jonathan Fryer Summary

Dylan Thomas's stellar literary reputation rests on about a dozen truly fine poems and one unforgettable radio play, Under Milk Wood. In this trenchant biography, Jonathan Fryer argues that Thomas's prose work was often better than his poetry. But both belied the true nature of the man who wrote them: a selfish, exploitative, self-pitying barfly who wooed women on both sides of the Atlantic with his mellifluous voice, only to leave a trail of devastation in his wake. A professional Welshman in London, Thomas was completely anglicised in Wales, but that contradiction was only one of many in a complex personality that both fascinated and repelled as it headed full-speed down the road to self-destruction. He met his match in the wild Irish hedonist Caitlin Macnamara; during their tempestuous marriage they were the soul of the party, but also the guests the others were most relieved to see depart. "Mr Fryer is immensely readable, writing with flair." Daily Telegraph "As Jonathan Fryer illustrates in his robust and sensible biography, the combination of dishonesty and ingratitude repeatedly manifested itself throughout the poet's life." Evening Standard "Few will quarrel with Fryer's conclusion: 'Though Dylan ought to be primarily remembered for his poetry, his most powerful and oddest legacy is his legend.'" The Bookseller
