THE EDGE OF LOVE is a beautiful, heart-rending account of the point in Dylan Thomas's life that he was torn between two women. His letters to the many women in his life are among the most beautiful and lyrical he wrote. Provoked mostly by separations, they are cajoling, apologetic, uninhibited, tactical and loving. This collection includes letters his first love; to Caitlin, his equally flamboyant wife; and to later loves. Like most great letter writers, Thomas had the gift of writing as if his correspondent stood in front of him. He also used his letters to secure forgiveness, to make excuses or to amuse or deflect. Sensual and earthy, like so much of his poetry, they were all designed to secure Thomas's place in his lover's heart and memory - the purpose of all true love letters.
