I saw a bird once by Alex Vellis



In this, his second full-length collection Alex Vellis explores the trauma of working class life.

Weaving multiple narratives, this collection is simultaneously bold and exciting, and tantilisingly bleak, as Alex pushes form with aplomb and delivers the guttural punches he’s known for.

In the years since Everything is Terrible, Alex’s writing has only gotten stronger, darker and more alluring.
