By: Matt Harvey
94 pages, drawings
A collection of Matt's latest poems - horticultural, whimsical, ecological, political and just plain funny. Where Earwigs Dare contains a rich biodiversity of verse, some recycled from Matt's appearances on Radio 4's Saturday Live and his stint writing Desktop Poetry for The Guardian, others that bubbled doggedly up of their own accord from a grim sense of joie de vivre.
There's enough stuff about potatoes and leeks, about clouds, sheds and slugs, to qualify as a Green Book - and enough about kippers and cows, pain relief, petty theft and public nudity, to qualify as a typical Harvey offering.
There is also an introduction to Empath Man - contemporary superhero who fights crime through his advanced listening skills and ability to stay open and vulnerable in a tight situation . . .
Nice to see Matt's fine ant and bee lines and mindings of the gap. He is a wonderer at the world and its words, although possibly a little anti-slug. - John Hegley
"Matt's poetry puts a smile on your face and leaves a little wisdom in your brain - a winning combination." - Fi Glover
