‘Evans’ poetry addresses the environmental apocalypse with biting wit and electrifying passion.’ —MATTHEW TODD,
author of Straight Jacket and Pride
‘A kaleidoscopic journey brimming with vivid imagery, playfulness and warmth
– a truly powerful work.’
‘Story weaving and poetically burrowing, CNUT is a universal backyard collection of the urban/urbane reimagined, of the domestic/fantastic retold, of the ravishingly re-readable.’
‘Poignant, humane and uncompromising’
As King Cnut proved, tide and time wait for no man: An AnthropoScene, the first part of this collection, dives into the rising tides of geo-political change, the second, Our Future Is Now Downloading, explores sea-changes of more personal natures. Nathan’s debut, Threads, was longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. His follow-up bears all the watermarks of someone who’s swum life’s emotional spectrum. Short and (bitter)sweet, this is poetry for a mobile generation, poetry for sharing – often humorous, always honest about contemporary human experience, saying more in a few lines than politicians say in volumes, it offers an antidote to modern living.
