Drew Davies

Drew Davies attended the Unitec School of Performing Arts in Auckland and won a Playmarket New Zealand Young Playwright of the Year award in 2000. After a brief stint on a kiwi soap, he has worked in Search for the past 15 years. Drew’s other claim to fame is that Stephen Fry once called him droll. Either that, or he got his name wrong. He now lives in Wanstead, London – and is the author of three novels: THE SHAPE OF US, DEAR LILY and WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.

A friend messages his sister with things he wants to remember (they live together - apparently, he does this regularly).

Here’s her response to my podcast recommendations:

Wow, the spam on Instagram knows how to get at me

In bookshops, I find the physical version of the ebook I’m reading & weigh how heavy it is in my hands

In 1908, there's a story in @nytimes about a dog who would push children into the Seine to earn treats for 'rescuing' them 😅

We have burger buns in the house, and not going to lie - I’ve incorporated them into every meal for about a week.

My relationship is 80% rom-com, 20% Esther Perel vids
