You Took the Last Bus Home by Brian Bilston


Grace’s Bookshelf of Dreams:

“I suggest this book for people buying a book for someone they don’t know well. Or for someone they do know well. Or for the themselves. Drop dead funny, lightheaded and hearted, and so so clever. I’ve given this as a gift to so many people from artists to solicitors. One of those books you can flick through lazily in the kitchen while waiting for the last 3 minutes on a lasagne. The only book of poetry I will consistently go back to.”

You Took the Last Bus Home is the first and long-awaited collection of ingeniously hilarious and surprisingly touching poems from Brian Bilston, the mysterious ‘Poet Laureate of Twitter’.

With endless wit, imaginative wordplay and underlying heartache, he offers profound insights into modern life, exploring themes as diverse as love, death, the inestimable value of a mobile phone charger, the unbearable torment of forgetting to put the rubbish out, and the improbable nuances of the English language.

Constantly experimenting with literary form, Bilston’s words have been known to float off the page, take the shape of the subjects they explore, and reflect our contemporary world in the form of Excel spreadsheets, Venn diagrams and Scrabble tiles.

This irresistibly charming collection of his best-loved poems will make you laugh out loud while making you question the very essence of the human condition in the twenty-first century.
