Selected Poems: Jonathan Davidson


Jonathan Davidson has a loving, observant and wry regard for the frailties of the human condition. He makes fresh something we thought we knew; writing of the everyday the way Vermeer might be said to paint it. — Maura Dooley

What Writers and Critics Think

  • Simple but often very poignant collection of poems that I love reading again and again. Family features strongly and it is hard not to be moved by the tender moments that are evoked throughout. Accessible and charming, would strongly recommend.
