Out Now: A Midlands Odyssey

as featured on BBC RADIO 4


Homer's homecoming epic is reimagined in the modern-day Midlands in this specially-commissioned series of stories by ten writers including Yasmin Ali, Lindsey Davis, Elisabeth Charis, Kit De Waal, Charlie Hill, Paul McDonald, Richard House, Dragan Todorovic, Natalie Haynes, David Calcutt. 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.



Niner Arches Press is an independent poetry publisher based in the UK.

"Here is a press that genuinely revels in publishing new and exciting poetry; when I read a Nine Arches Press book I know that my mind will be a bit bigger once I've finished it. And my smile will be wider. Let the revels begin!" - Ian McMillan
