This is a PAPERBACK BOOK. And it is ram-jammed full of poems by KEY. Originally it was conceived and sold as a hardback book. Increasingly KEY has agitated for that brute to be superseded by something more chic; a slimmer, more athletic version that one can slide into a pocket or down a rugby sock. And now here it is. Within its featherweight pages you will find the vast majority of the same poems as you'll find in its unwieldy predecessor. Poems skewering such thorny issues as sex, pancakes, footy and vodka. But, in order to drum up renewed interest, KEY has also added a new poem. And there are also seven new introductions. And KEY has also been allowed to waddle round the text with his Lamy fountain pen, altering and updating. Improving. Making everything just so. For this: THE PAPERBACK.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Key locates the spot where poetry, comedy and art intersect, picnics there pleasurably, then takes a crap on it -- ADAM BUXTON
I am jealous of my friend Tim Key. He has one of the funniest, smartest comic minds in the country. If women start finding him attractive I will hang myself -- STEPHEN MERCHANT
Renders all other poetry collections redundant, which they were anyway -- CHARLIE BROOKER
His brief verses range from the whimsical to the sinister . . . He is quick and mischievous, rarely earnest * * Guardian * *
Tim Key is one of the most talented comedic brains in Britain! . . . This collection of his latest work is a delight -- LAUREN LAVERNE
If there's a funnier book of poems published this year, then we will eat all the hats in the Dazed fashion cupboard. ... [Key] is one of those rare and blessed people who seem almost biologically incapable of doing anything that isn't completely hilarious. ... a total comic masterpiece from a total comic genius * * Dazed and Confused * *
Key is a brilliantly intelligent comic. His poems are hugely skilful, and often funnier in five lines than many comedians can manage to be in an hour on stage * * The List * *
He's a genius plain and simple * * Time Out * *
