New York academic John Malcolm Brinnin brought Dylan Thomas to America where the volatile celebrity poet, tormented by anonymity, alcohol and the abyss, scandalized the Manhattan literati of the Fifties and challenged Brinnin's hero worship of his work. In the face of the Welsh poet's wilder excesses in the Big Apple, John has no choice but to hijack Dylan to a private retreat to get him ready for America and the days and nights that follow will change his life forever. Based on true events.
