i stumbled across the beautiful Alsop Review years ago, while looking for an upload of A Child’s Christmas in Wales.
Jaimes Alsop made it a holiday tradition, on the site... I first got the little book with the woodcut harps of hills and chimney smoke in my stocking. I remember it as my favourite literature at the age of six or so. My mother had read to my sister and  I from Journeys through bookland and Number Four Joy Street and such, but there was nothing like Dylan Thomas to my ears.  We had the little books, and our parents had the LP we would lie on the floor and listen to.

I did not read this work until an adult, but then I lived that live as described by Dylan Thomas. We had more than our share of odd characters in our town and some very famous, world renown even.

I love Dylan Thomas' poetry but prefer to read his work.  I am not a great fan of recited poetry. I used to post on the Alsop Review.  I also met Dylan's son Colm, who married a friend of mine.
