About the Author

Brian Bilston is clouded in the pipe smoke of mystery. He has been described as the Banksy of poetry and Twitter's unofficial Poet Laureate. With over 50,000 followers, numbering J. K. Rowling, Roger McGough and Frank Cottrell Boyce amongst many, many other luminaries, Brian has become truly beloved by the Twitter community. His first collection, You Took the Last Bus Home, was published by Unbound. He won the Great British Write Off competition in 2015 - and was the Poet in Residence for the World Economic Forum in 2016. In recent times, there have been features on him on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, the BBC news website, the Irish Times, the Independent and the Smithsonian Magazine. Most of these features seem to have largely centred around his pipe.
