Dragging his renegade carcass up and down the country like a man possessed, David Merritt is one of the hardest working (and nicest) poets you're ever likely to meet. Humbly constructing poem books by hand from the detritus of consumer waste, he uses recycled Readers' Digests to create word treasures that are unmistakably his own. Mating insightful political comment with arresting emotional themes- expect poetry that strips the cynicism from your arteries. Expect whimsical  tangents and badger noises. Expect an accompaniment of sound sorcery from Chris Heazlewood (guitar) and Justine Francis (viola) to gently squeeze your throat. Koha entry.
