A selection of stories from this book are currently being broadcast on BBC Radio Four as part of Writing West.






The Midlands by Tony Williams


The Midlands is the second collection by Tony Williams, following his acclaimed debut The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street in inimitable and lyrical style. Beginning in the Midlands themselves, with the ‘unfound grave of a Mercian king under wurzels, new housing and out-of-town Asdas’, his poems compose a tragi-comic paean to vanishing hinterlands and finely-tuned weirdness, to domestic relics, to dog walks, dust and phantoms.
