Brian Bilston has been described as the Banksy of poetry and Twitter’s unofficial Poet Laureate; with
over 400,000 followers on social media, Brian has become truly beloved by the online community.
He has published several collections of poetry, including You Took the Last Bus Home and Alexa, what is
there to know about love?, described by one reviewer as ‘the funniest collection of humorous verse I have
seen in a long time’. His novel Diary of a Somebody was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel award. He
has also written poetry for children, including a collection of football poems, 50 Ways to Score a Goal,
while his acclaimed poem Refugees was set to music by composer Mark-Anthony Turnage and turned
into a picture book.
Days Like These: An Alternative Guide to the Year in 366 Poems is his latest book and is out now in
hardback, a brilliant collection of poems that will take the blues out of Monday, flatten the Wednesday
hump and amplify that Friday feeling, from January through to December.
