The long-awaited collection of ingeniously hilarious and surprisingly touching poems from Brian Bilston, the mysterious 'Poet Laureate of Twitter'.

About the Author

Described as the `Poet Laureate of Twitter', 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 Jeremy Clarkson. In 2014 he became the first person to be named Pipe Smoker of the Year [Poetry section] and, over the years, he has won numerous awards for cycling proficiency, first aid, and general tidiness. You Took the Last Bus Home is the first published collection of his poetry.


"Brian Bilston is a laureate for our fractured times, a wordsmith who cares deeply about the impact his language makes as it dances before our eyes." -- Ian McMillan
"If you like a) laughing or b) words which rhyme with each other, you will love Brian Bilston." -- Richard Osman
"Bilston is no stranger to crafting cleverly composed poetry." * Huffington Post *
"Part John Cooper Clarke, part Frank Sidebottom. Brian's minimalist homages... are all brilliant." * Esquire Weekly *
"Brian Bilston is bringing poetry to the masses... with his topical, witty, thoughtful and accessible poems." * Irish Times *
