Some wonderful burb quotes have been flooding in for Siôn Tomos Owen's anthology of cartoons, essays, poetry and fiction Cawl.


‘Good, honest, mean-minded, violent, foul-mouthed stuff, just what a good cartoon should be. Siôn Tomos Owen is a down ‘n’ dirty Welsh Robert Crumb, as exhilarating and slightly terrifying as a Saturday night in the rougher parts of Swansea (and if you can find the less rough parts, good luck to you!).’ – Martin Rowson
