Caitlin Thomas (née Macnamara; 8 December 1913 – 31 July 1994) was an author and the wife of the poet and writer Dylan Thomas.

Caitlin Thomas (née Macnamara; 8 December 1913 – 31 July 1994) was an author and the wife of the poet and writer Dylan Thomas. Their marriage was a stormy affair, fuelled by alcohol and infidelity, though the couple remained together until Dylan's death in 1953. She paints a picture of a grieving widow seeking solace in distance, a younger lover, and alcohol.

Caitlin and Dylan Thomas were married for 16 years, until Dylan's death in 1953. Though they seemed destined for each other, they were at times each other's nemesis, and Caitlin is not averse to revealing the squalid details of the marital discord, financial distress, infidelity, and alcoholism that turned this love story into a tragedy. But she also records the tenacity and tenderness, the barely defined homeliness and dependence gently simmering, like her perennial pot of soup, above the turbulence

A blistering, mature, loving ovenblast of a memoir about Caitlin Thomas' marriage to the 20th century's most celebrated alcoholic genius, written 30 years later, after several suicide attempts, and now 10 years sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous. It is the possibly unequaled record of a poet's wife while he is in the throes of creation and the pits between.

I enjoy literary biography and autobiography. I have read about Dylan Thomas, which made me become fascinated with her gifted wife Caitlin. This is her account of her own feelings about herself and him. She was such a passionate and unconventional woman. I dont think one can understand Thomas without seeing how he loved and was influenced by his wife Caitlin.

This is a good one! Here's a choice excerpt:

"[My husband Dylan Thomas] would never go near the stove if he could possibly avoid it. He left me to cook those endless pots of bone broth, highly spiced spaghetti with onions and garlic, and the occasional flat fish which I caught myself in the estuary waters below the Boat House. I never thought to clean them. I just used to fling them in the frying pan whole. (I remember once I caught one and threw it in the pan, thinking it was dead, and it leapt straight out and flopped around the floor. I picked it up with a piece of rag and dropped it straight back into the pan, holding it down with the pan cover. It was struggling to get out so I must have cooked it alive. It was fresh, anyway. I ate it with great relish — the best fried flat fish that I have ever had.)

"I could be pretty savage. Another time someone brought us a lobster and I dropped it straight into a stewpan of boiling water, and the wretched thing tried to crawl out. No one had told me that I had to tie the claws first. I pushed it back into the pan and held the lid down. Dylan was horrified, and he kept well away."
