When Dylan Thomas died in 1953 at the height of his fame, no one doubted his death was caused by chronic alcoholism, and that his wife Caitlin shared the blame. This book claims that Dylan was a diabetic who was given the wrong treatment, and follows the events of Caitlin's life since 1953.
When Dylan Thomas died in 1953 at the height of his fame, his death was widely believed to have been caused by his chronic alcoholism. This book explores recent discoveries which show that he was in fact a diabetic who was given the wrong treatment at his New York hospital - the treatment that this book claims led to his death. The book aims to establish what really happened, and to trace the life of his wife Caitlin following his death, when no one doubted she was equally to blame for his death, and she fled the country. The events of Caitlin's life after this are explored, from her settling in Italy, to her feuding with her children by Dylan and the trustees of his estate, her fourth child at the age of 49, and her refusal to marry again.
