This month we have been reading Diary of a Somebody by Brian Bilston, who is often described as Twitter’s unofficial poet laureate. It is a debut novel, written under a nom-de-plume, has poetry, cats, and a bit of a murder mystery ….. what’s not to like?
“It’s January 1st and Brian Bilston is convinced that this year, his New Year’s resolution will change his life. Every day for a year, he will write a poem. It’s quite simple….. Part tender love story, part murder mystery, part hilarious description of a wasted life, and interspersed with some of the funniest poems about the mundane and the profound.”
