By  Dannie Abse

A fully revised and updated autobiography by one of this country's finest poets. 'A magnificently conceived work.' Guardian

Dannie Abse's rich mixture of Welsh and Jewish backgrounds, and his dual occupations of doctor and author, have led to what is widely regarded as one of the most readable, humorous and poignant autobiographies since the war. Goodbye, Twentieth Century incorporates his acclaimed first volume of autobiography, A Poet in the Family, in a new volume which brings his life up to the present and the outset of a new century.
