Redux: What Killed Dylan Thomas

In What Killed Dylan Thomas, Tony De Sarzec writes on the furore surrounding the death of the poet, asking whether a rockstar lifestyle – and eighteen straight whiskies – really caused his untimely demise or, conversely, whether these were simply a part of a carefully orchestrated public persona.
