Some Traveller - Ben Fagan
Welcome to the big city. You've spoken to friends and family, downloaded all the right apps, joined the facebook groups, but still feel lost. The last thing you need is more advice, so here's a hot tip: this book of poetry can help.
Some Traveller shares stories of love, death, family and what happens if you wear jandals in London after it's been raining. This collection will encourage any future travellers and give company to those feeling far from home. Also, puns.
'A must read for travellers new and old.'
- Clint Heine, Kiwis in London
'Ben's poems creep up on you gently, and before you know it you never want them to let go. A perfect blend of heart and humour.'
- Harry Baker, World Poetry Slam Champion
'...a hīkoi from the colonies that so many know well, but few could express with such nimble intellect and wit.'
- Jess Holly Bates, Author of REAL FAKE WHITE DIRT
