Adventures in the Skin Trade, and Other Stories

Book - 1964
Rate this:
This collection of the poet Dylan Thomas's fiction--and what an extraordinary storyteller he was!--holds special interest because it ranges from the early stories such as "The School for Witches" and "The Burning Baby," with their powerful inheritance of Welsh mythology and wild imagination, to the chapters he completed before his death of the alas unfinished novel Adventures in the Skin Trade. Adventures is the story, written in a shrewd, sly, deadpan vein of picaresque comedy, of young Samuel Bennet, who runs away from his home in Wales to seek his fortune in London.
