David Floyd combines a dry, sardonic wit with a quirky and original imagination. Floyd’s poetry inhabits a world most of his readers will recognize – especially those who spend time waiting at bus stops and dealing with unwanted mail from big organisations. But he looks at this world with a very individual eye and while his observations are often very funny they are also perceptive and sometimes surprisingly tender.
Michael Bartholew-Biggs, Poetry Review
"Protest is an enjoyable read; and it also bears re-reading. Many of the poems contain felicitous touches you might be tempted to share with someone else in the room/on the bus beside you. Floyd (who, incidentally, is a good reader of his own work) does what he does very well indeed."
