Described as the ‘Poet Laureate of Twitter’ and ‘part John Cooper-Clarke, part Frank Sidebottom’, Brian Bilston is a poet clouded in the pipe smoke of mystery. Very little is known about him other than the fragments of information revealed on social media: his penchant for tank tops, his enjoyment of Vimto, his dislike of (and his poems about) Jeremy Clarkson. He talks to Andy Miller (A Year of Reading Dangerously) about his novel & poetry collection You Took the Last Bus Home. Whether they’re talking about love, death, buses, mobile phones, or the socio-cultural impact of delayed Ocado deliveries, this is life-affirming stuff.Buy tickets
