Personal Quote:

[Following his wife's death] Writers go bad when the angels desert them. Dylan Thomas was a marvelous poet and drank himself to death. Somewhere along the way the angel deserted him. An angel has left me too, but the writing angel is still with me.


Most of his work is about helping people, such as his play, "The Miracle Worker", based on Helen Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan. See more »
