Dylan was a pupil at the Swansea Grammar School. I attended the Swansea Municipal School . I remember our English teacher reading a poem by Dylan printed in the Grammar School magazine. He described as 'remarkable' for one so young. A glimpse of things to come?

this searing book is caitlin's story of the passions, the rage and the tragic humour of those years of drink and the toll it took on the lives of two talented people, leaving one of them dead at the age of thirty-nine, and the other alone, penniless and an alcoholic. it is also the memoir of a woman not always likeable, but consistently energetic and honest and possessing an indomitable spirit.
