Brian Bilston has decided to write a poem every day for a year whilst he tries to repair his ever-desperate life. His ex-wife has taken up with a new man, a marketing guru and motivational speaker who seems to be disturbingly influencing his son, Dylan. Meanwhile Dylan's football team keeps being beaten 0-11, as he stands disconsolately on the wing waiting vainly to receive the ball. At work he is drowning in a sea of spreadsheets and is becoming increasingly confused by the complexities of modern communication and management jargon. So poetry will be his salvation. But can Brian's poetry save him from Toby Salt, his arch nemesis in the Poetry Group and potential rival suitor to Brian's new poetic inspiration, Liz. Worst of all Toby has announced that boutique artisan publishing house, Shooting from the Hip, will be publishing his first collection, titled This Bridge No Hands Shall Cleft, in the Autumn. And when he goes missing Brian is inevitably the number one suspect. Part tender love story, part murder mystery, part corruscating description of a wasted life, and interspersed with some of the funniest poems about the mundane and the profound, Diary of a Somebody is the most original novel you will read this year.
