Pete Carter - Buddy's Brother

From Standing Room Only, 2:45 pm on 31 January 2016

Pete Carter is a poet, a short story writer and a keen rambler. His latest book, Buddy’s Brother, follows his month-long journey along Britain’s’ South West Coast Path, a walk keenly associated with his parents. The book is an answer of sorts to his 2013 book Its Your Dad, written about their deaths and both are straightforward, upfront collections of writing because as Pete tells me, he doesn’t like poems that he can’t understand.
