The Apple Sequence (Orchard, 2011. 63pp. Paperback).
Themed collection of poems on the subject of apples - their origins, genetics, varieties and folklore - written in response to the visual artist Neville Gabie's 'Orchard' project and launched during December 2011. This book was published to coincide with the relaunch of Nottingham's traditional fruit and vegetable market in Sneinton Square and is not available elsewhere.
"Baroque manipulations of natural imagery set his work well apart from writing in the green affirmative mode..." (Poetry Review)
"I very much like the richness and originality and energy of this writing. This is the real stuff of poetry" (Myra Schneider)
Marginalia (Peterloo, 2001. 66pp. Paperback).
Debut collection of poetry by Wayne Burrows, originally published by Harry Chambers at Peterloo Poets in 2001.
"Marginalia is a book about being in love in our increasingly weird world, transformed by the scientific view and the bombardments of the media. It's exploring a new feeling of being human, registering the survival of love in spite of everything" (Ambit)
"The power of the genuinely surreal comes together here with a different kind of haunting (Dutch) painterly perspective" (TLS)
"Marginalia is a considerable achievement" (Poetry Wales)
"Profound, unusual images of humanity...powerful, modern and very impressive" (The Big Issue in the North)
