Writers: Dylan Thomas Notebook found

Thomas - NotebookSotheby’s auction house in London is putting up for sale a recently discovered notebook holding the lost drafts of some of the key works of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.

The book was apparently given to a servant after Thomas left it behind in the 1930s at the house of his mother-in-law, who did not get along with him and ordered it burned.  The servant saved it instead, and the book is now expected to fetch 150,000 pounds. A letter, bounced cheque and other documents which were also found shed more light on what Thomas was thinking, the state of his marriage and the torment of his drinking.  See a more complete story on The Daily Mail online.
