Conkers by James Bunting
Conkers is the debut collection from James Bunting. Published by Burning Eye Books.
“Conkers is a collection with Bristol at its heart. A love for the city pervades every word and you can hear it whispering through the houses, streets and harbour of the town that grew each syllable and sentence. ‘Conkers’ is a journey through loving and living, wrestling with an innocence and a world-wise weariness seemingly completely opposed. It is a collection that pulls you close and spins you across the page, setting you down gently with an ache in your heart and a longing for whatever city you call home. At its close, Conkers is about a girl. A story that will remain in just those few words."
