About Alex Burrett

Alex Burrett grew up in South Wales near Wordsworth’s Tintern Abbey.

He’s been writing creative material since single figures. (Saying that, don’t most of us write creative material when we’re in single figures?) Work and leisure have taken him around a fair bit of Britain and Western Europe, over to the US a handful of times – with a couple of trips to the Eastern Mediterranean thrown in for good measure. In that time he’s scaled and fallen off cliff faces, played and got scared in fresh and salt water, loved, hated, got confused, inebriated, depressed and had moments of extraordinarily blinding clarity. His proudest boast is to be married to a magnificent woman and have four fantastic children.

'The Titans' is his first novel. Written in 1991, Alex published it as an ebook in 2013.

'My Goat Ate Its Own Legs' is a collection of short stories. It was published in the UK in 2008, US in 2009 and [hopefully] will appear in translation in France in 2014.

'Fedw' is a collection of poems scrawled in blood and tears in a tatty notebook over 25 years. It is now available as an ebook.

'A damaged boy' is his second collection of short fiction. It contains two novellas: 'Liftless' and 'The Great Unloved'.

'Outstared by a Bullfrog' is Alex Burrett's second novel. It's trippy. And edgy.

Please post a review of any of Alex's work. Good or bad – he would love to know what you think.

Reviews of Fedw by Alex Burrett

Mike reviewed on Oct. 30, 2014

Some beautiful poems here! While it's tempting to itemise each one and elaborate, I'll take the quick way out and generalise, inserting a few exceptions.

I don't think the "gritty language" writes were handled very well, apart from "Verbulasult" which is excellent. The other "crude" compositions were just that.

I could read these poems often enough to want to keep a copy of the book. In particular, I would like to be reminded of "Describing colours to a blind man", "Crumpled" and "He makes sailing ships". Difficult to decide which is my favourite amongst this trio. Most of the others are readable to very good.

Well worth the time taken to read and digest these.
