Book Summary:

We Burn on Friday is Richard Manieri's account of growing up in the Italian-American community of Philadelphia, with hilarious tales of learning his way around a boxing ring, getting through weekly confession at his Catholic church (name and serial number only), and taking that frightening walk to meet a girl across the dance floor. His story extends to his determined but often stymied journey into broadcast journalism -- including his first job at a radio station, where he learned, after he was hired, that his work included burning the station's trash every Friday. And all of it is told through the prism of his deep and abiding love for his father, who, one way or the other, was with him every step of the way. -- Richard Manieri

Book Summary:

The poet’s daughter tells of growing up with him in 1940s Wales, and “portrays a chaotic childhood with unsentimental grace” (The New York Times). When Aeronwy was six, her parents, Dylan and Caitlin Thomas, moved to a boathouse at the edge of the small Welsh village of Laugharne. In this “enthralling [and] funny” memoir, she recreates those years, revealing from a child’s point of view the chaos and joy of living with Dylan Thomas while the poet was at the height of his creative powers, composing Under Milk Wood (The Washington Times). Through a series of beautifully evocative episodes, the author paints a picture of village and family life, and a new portrait emerges of Dylan Thomas. Along with never-before-published photos, My Father’s Places features personalities like artist Augustus John and historian A. J. P. Taylor—as well as the villagers who would eventually be transformed into the characters from Llareggub. “Clear-eyed, Laurie Lee-like memories of mudflats and sandbanks, picnics, swimming and going cockling . . . This enchanted but unsentimental book . . . of her wonderfully vivid childhood is profoundly moving.” —Daily Mail “Highly evocative, moving and melancholy.” —The Sunday Times “An enchanting book on every level, Aeronwy Thomas is not just her father’s daughter but a skilled author in her own right.” —Jennifer Worth, author of Call the Midwife
