The Two Dylans

Come and join KG Miles and Jeff Towns for the launch of their fascinating new book – The Two Dylans.

There are many wonderful connections and coincidences; shared passions and associations that tie the two cultural icons, Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas together which provides us with a rich tapestry of words – from the ancient Welsh folk tales of the Mabinogion to the poems of the Beat Generation; from Stravinsky to John Cale; from Johnny Ray to Charlie Chaplain. Rimbaud and Lorca, Sgt Pepper and The Bells of Rhymney, Nelson Algren and Tennessee Williams and much more.

“Why, you can’t swing a cat without hitting a Dylan … such are the influences of these two cultural giants. Why did Dylan choose Dylan as his name? Where do the worlds of these colossal culture vultures and wordsmiths collide? Some of the answers are found in the pages of this book and a lot more besides. I hope you enjoy the trip as much as I do.”
