Tim Key Book and Novel

Tim Key - Author


Tim Key (34) is ideal. He is a poet who favours dark suits, lager and long hot baths. He works on BBC Four in Charlie Brooker's Newswipe and has travelled to Norway and the Lake District. In 2009 he won the Edinburgh Comedy Award for his poetical recital The Slutcracker and has filmed some of his poeticals in black and white to overwhelming critical clamour.* *NB. I hate writing these. My publisher, a young guy (barely older than myself) asked for something from me and I (contractually) had to oblige but really I found the whole thing pretty abhorrent. If it were down to me, which it isn't (contractually) I would have either had nothing here, or just something simple like a picture of a hen. But that wouldn't cut it with Nick Davies (my young publisher). I can just imagine him using phrases like 'why do you propose we have a hen on the AI' and 'read your contract, you have to deliver copy for the AI, not suggest an illustration'. But on topics such as this I know there's more or less no talking to the guy because he has his 'way of doing things' and because I am under contract (contractually) to do what he says.
