The Nutter in the Shrubbery


Category Pamphlet
A first foray into strange poetic suburbs, the pamphlet first published in 2002 and subsequently reissued in 2007.

Different characters populate and haunt this collection. An Italian not feeling on top of the world, a woman dancing naked into a garden, a single mum in a filling station, a boy who takes himself as hostage. Davies explores the treacherous life of the suburbs with an edge of menace and humour. Strange creatures and uneasy furniture stalk the undergrowth. And who is the nutter in the shrubbery?
