Description

‘Siôn Tomos Owen’s book couldn’t come at a more opportune time as Wales and the valleys especially, face the future. Owen’s work speaks for the present with magnificent confidence; witty, elegant, profound. This book should be read widely as it brings us the finest blend of what literature can do to enrich the mind and tug at the heart with the intermingling of prose and poetry. It is a delight to read but also an urgent book as it challenges simplistic assumptions of what it means to belong. The need for roots is present here but uprootedness is never more than a heartbeat away from y filltir sgwâr, the ‘square mile’. Owen is a writer of breadth and depth. He is a writer of extraordinary gifts who will soar to great heights. It is more than a book — it is a revelation.’ - Menna Elfyn

‘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

Consisting of short stories, poems, essays, cartoons and comics, Cawl is an anthology of one multi-prize-winning, funny, angry young man’s creative endeavours and social and political frustrations. Traditionally Cawl is a mix of everything thrown into one stew pot and left to simmer, boil over and be savoured. Here Siôn Tomos Owen invites the reader to choose what to taste next. The meat of the essays, the parsnip of poetry, the spud of satire or the OXO cube of comedy.
