Towns of Two Halves extracts
● “I set aside Sunday for sight-seeing. In the morning I asked the young woman at reception what I shouldn’t miss, given that I had only the day to look at Swansea and might never be back. ‘The Mumbles,’ she replied instantly and distinctly.”
● “The Dylan Thomas Museum relied neither on looks nor weather. Its first appeal was, appropriately enough, to the ears of passers-by. The unmistakable voice of Richard Burton declaimed lines from Under Milk Wood to the pavement at large. Even if I had not been heading that way the voice would have lured me in.”
● “The hotel bar was very quiet and the restaurant held only two other diners. They were a couple engaged in an intimate tête-à-tête, and when the maître d’ made as though to put me alongside them I suggested we give them some privacy. Nodding at my consideration, he found a place for me at the far end of the room; if not at the back of beyond, certainly at the back of the north Wind.”
