John Davies

Writer and poet

Nest—the North American edition of John's New and Selected Poems is now available from Red Hen Press and Amazon.  

‘This collection presents a nuanced web-work of familial experience, vivid and detailed, tracing an arc from a welcome to a newborn along to a greeting of parental spirits from the past. The natural world is richly observed ... in poems alive with colour, texture, and pace. A sparing use of rueful wit plus a varied and strong use of form further distinguish this exciting new collection.’    Penelope Shuttle
