A Child's Christmas in Wales

Humorous, sad, magical, irresistible account of Dylan Thomas' own childhood and of a Christmas day in a small Welsh town. Originally written for the BBC before the end of World War II, this poetic tale has become almost as familiar to some of us as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. This New Directions edition features woodcuts by Ellen Raskin. Small blue softcover with wraps. Upaginated. 5.5 x 5.25 inches. Mild soil, generally a good clean copy. Copyright states a 1959 original printing, this is a much later 23rd printing.
