Dylan Thomas —A Child’s Christmas in Wales, Terry Lucas - December 18, 2016

Dylan Thomas —A Child’s Christmas in Wales, Terry Lucas - December 18, 2016

WordTemple host Katherine Hastings carries on an annual December tradition. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, we can always celebrate the great Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, reading his short story, A Child’s Christmas in Wales. Following Thomas, Hastings interviews Marin County poet Terry Lucas. Lucas reads from his first full-length collection, In This Room, talks about his press, Trio House, and his upcoming book Dharma Rain.

“There’s a dark and pungent biography half-hidden in these lines. There’s a boy who came to spend half a lifetime in fumbling foreplay with God, a clothing store clerk on Black Friday ushering you into the maw of America, … a man smitten with the geography of California…At the center of In This Room is a breath-taking sequence of poems, ‘The Gate,’ honoring the Golden Gate Bridge. At its rounding curve is a hilarious account of neighbors having a fight. Imagine the ghosts of Hart Crane and Larry Levis welcoming Terry Lucas to their fraternity.” — Alic
