Papaya Fantasia by David Williams
Published 15th November
Following on from his quite brilliant debut, The Odd Sock Exchange, Papaya Fantasia shows a poet that has matured and developed his voice whilst becoming increasingly confident in his ability to point out those parts of life that the rest of us can otherwise miss. David has a deceptive depth to his work and you can easily find yourself suddenly realising there was an extra layer, as the penny drops long after you have put the book down. This is a stunning collection that you will be reading time and again.
