When the author Andrew Lycett wrote the most recent Dylan Thomas biography  DYLAN THOMAS; A NEW LIFE[W & N 2003] Jeff Towns assisted him with his research..this is what Andrew had to say about Jeff in the acknowledgements ;

“Every book brings new friends, new acquaintances. In the former category I am privileged to count Swansea bookselller, Jeff Towns. He is an essential point of contact for anyone writing about Dylan Thomas.  I’m sure that when he heard that someone else was embarking on a biography, he inwardly groaned. But, from the very first occasion I met him he was a fountain of information, encouragement and superior gossip. He also generously made available his vast collection….I doubt I could have written this book without him.”

Andrew Lycett, 2003
