Back in 2005 Dave and his friend Derek decided they needed a challenge and so what better than a little bike ride around the countryside. Read on… ‘When you’re nearly forty years... More > old, just recovering from glandular fever and double pneumonia what better way to celebrate your wedding than to leave your wife behind to cycle the length of Britain? An account of two friends, who got drunk one night and decided to pedal nearly 1000 miles for charity, proving that you don’t need a state-of-the-art road bike, a skin-tight outfit with a TV sponsor written on the front or a made-to-measure ego – you just need a good mate, a beer mat’s worth of planning, no training whatsoever and the will to do it.’ More than just another cycling trip, this book is a funny and sometimes moving account of a few weeks in the summer of 2005 when coupled with various personal events life takes on a new and different perspective.

Dave Lewis offers multiple perspectives in this musical travelogue through a modern Wales and beyond. Honest, raw and mysterious. Just when you think you’ve worked it out, a twist, a turn, a... More > sensuous push. This collection is finely honed. From the intimacy of family and friends to lovers and laughable locals, he is obviously well-travelled and a quality of authenticity shines through. The writer’s eye for detail is finely observed and he is not afraid to experiment. The prose pieces are well crafted and show great range and the final poem in the collection is about as perfect as a poem can be – a masterpiece! A writer who teases and taunts us to dismiss him. I have no doubt that his work will go down in history as both avant-garde and revolutionary. No pretentious bullshit here, this is cutting edge stuff. The short story 'Onions' was runner up in the Rhys Davies Competition.< Less

Sawing Fallen Logs For Ladybird Houses By Dave Lewis
eBook (PDF): $6.25
(4 Ratings)
Praise for Sawing Fallen Logs: From the first eponymously titled poem, we realise that Dave Lewis's work possesses an energy and freshness that lifts his imagery and empathy way above the work of... More > many less ambitious poets. The element of surprise in each poem, however short, is even more startling coming as it does from such uncluttered writing. Last lines are an example, while phrases such as ‘trees as tall as ships’, ‘a severe lack of hares’, ‘the brittle grass of misunderstanding...’ will surely enhance the readers' own perceptions of the world around them. This collection's structure too, works well under its five separate headings, and the diverse forms used in several poems adds visual variety. A wonderful read. Buy it! - Sally Spedding Dave Lewis is a vital voice of the Valleys, in touch with both the streets and the natural world. His free-flowing verse makes him a Welsh son of the Beats. - Mike Jenkins< Less

Dave Lewis' poetry is honest and direct. Each word is effective and easily understood. Unlike so many others today, he writes from the heart and soul, from raw emotion; he has drawn on his wide... More > ranging knowledge and experience to evolve a style, an elevated poetic diction, which eschews artifice and ornate language. To do otherwise, to court obscurity, to write for just a small coterie, would be for him to miss the mark. A true son of his native South Wales Valleys, his work moves from the local, to the national, to the international; he aspires to a universal discourse, beyond the here and now, and beyond class, or localness, or country. This excellent collection of Dave Lewis' work is highly recommended - John Evans.< Less
Roadkill By Dave Lewis
Paperback: $11.90

(11 Ratings)
Dave Lewis' eight book is a new collection of contemporary poetry. ‘Dave Lewis’ new work opens with Henry Thoreau’s famous quote, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet... More > desperation”. Very apt in our Twitter-twatter, X-Box-Factor age when apathy, indifference, and resignation is the norm and the – increasingly – lost generation slumber party away their lives wearing Onesies. This book of verse is polemical, confessional, a slap in the face wake-up call, and a much needed challenge to all “those up there” who should have, and could have made it better.’ – John Evans ‘At times witty, at times gritty, Dave Lewis has produced a fascinating collection on human connection. The humour is dark, the love is bright, the poetry is touching, taunting, spewing, galling, tender. Modern life is out there and engulfing but the passion for truth still lives. Roadkill overflows with personality, it’s a roller-coaster ride, and to use the words of the poet “I’m smiling like Tenby”.’ – Eloise Williams< Less
