In praise of weeds…

‘Wild things’ — a meditation on weeds and the way they refuse to fit the neatness of cultivated life and their ability to persist and survive — is from Australian writer Beth Spencer’s third book, Vagabondage, about the year she lived in a campervan.

Vagabondage is available from UWAPublishing, as an ebook on Amazon and Kobo or direct from Beth at

Beth Spencer is featured writer on the wonderful Verity La.

This video of ‘Wild Things’ was produced by Oakley Fletcher in association with UWA Publishing. Read by Jenn Godfrey. Music by Chris Zabriskie.
