A Child of Love and War: Verse Memoir

By D. M. Thomas


D. M. Thomas, author of the iconic world-bestseller novel The White Hotel, explores here some of the key emotional and sexual events and relationships in what has often been a turbulent inner and domestic life. The result is a brilliant, searingly honest and moving verse memoir. The period covered is from his birth in 1935 to the death of his second wife in 1998. He is the winner of a Cholmondeley Award for his poetry.

‘There aren’t many poets in England as good as Thomas.’ – The Guardian.

D. M. Thomas is an internationally known poet and novelist. His third novel, The White Hotel, considered a modern classic, has been translated into more than thirty languages. Three more of his most recent works, Hunters in the Snow (2014), Corona Man (2020) and The Last Waltz (2021) are also published by the Cornovia Press. He lives in his native Cornwall with his fourth wife Angela.
