David Heidenstam

David Heidenstam grew up in Norfolk, England, in the 1950s. Trained as a political scientist, he has worked as a labourer, security guard, editor, house renovator, village postman, sailboat-delivery cook/crewman, and warden of backpackers' hostels in Ireland. In the 1970s he was one of those responsible for the Body books series (Man’s Body, Woman’s Body, Child’s Body), which went into 16 languages (including a US Book of the Month selection) and in many cultures gave ordinary people access to health and body information for the first time. His journeys have included hitch-hiking through Iraq just after the Ba'ath party had come to power, two Atlantic crossings on sailboats, and taking his father travelling for the last years of his life. Some of his poems have appeared, or are due to, in Ambit, Agenda, the American Journal of Poetry, Blue Unicorn, The Journal (UK), Orbis, and Two Thirds North, and in Faber, Carcanet, and other anthologies. His book of microfictions, Tales for my dog, was shortlisted (Honourable Mention) for the SPReview 2018 Book of the Year Award. His website is at davidheidenstam.com, including the eccentric retrospective blog, davidheidenstam.com/footloose.
