  "It is an ironic and sometimes savage take on contemporary capitalism as well as a yearning for a sense of community lost." - Seren

  "Yesterday's Tomorrow should place Alun Rees where he belongs - at the very core of Welsh literature in English today in the tradition of Idris Davies, Harri Webb and John Tripp..." - Mike Jenkins

  "The support he offers to working class people, the dispossessed and the underdog makes Rees deserving of his reputation throughout Wales today as a 'people's poet'." - Big Issue

  "Rees' work speaks with compassion and controlled rage" - Ian Seed

  "What Rees does here is to ascribe to the working class as a whole the collective virtue of honesty; poverty and honesty are, in effect, made to go hand-in-hand." - Matthew Jarvis
