"In the spirit of Sterne (trapped on a wet weekend in Aberstwyth) or Flann O'Brien (enduring the final cure), Lloyd Jones delivers the tour guide Wales has been waiting for: warped history, throwaway erudition, somber farce. Stop what you're doing and listen to this mongrel monologue." —Iain Sinclair, author, White Chappell, Scarlet Tracings
"Mr. Vogel is surely one of the most remarkable books ever written on the subject of Wales—or rather around the subject, because it is an astonishing mixture of fantasy, philosophy and travel figuratively expressed through the medium of that endlessly figurative country." —Jan Morris, author, Trieste and the meaning of nowhere
