Instructions, Guidelines, Tutelage, Suggestions.

Tim Key’s second book, the follow up to 2007’s acclaimed 25 Poems, 3 recipes and 32 other Suggestions (An Inventory), is a stranger, sterner beast. No poems this time. Instead Key takes us through a series of peculiar suggestions, such as Some Designs For T-Shirts through How To Make A Cow Talk and Some Things A Fiddler Might Think. Quite possibly the oddest, funniest book released in the last few years. It is a beautifully designed, lavishly produced, and utterly undefinable thing of staggering originality.

144 Pages.

This book is peppered with majestically off-the-wall invention and provides a showcase for Key's unique sense of humour – a mixture of the bleakness of European cinema and daft, gentle whimsy.
- THE GUARDIAN

Spike Milligan and Stephen Fry have produced comic gold in book form and Key is following in that tradition. It's original and most of all, funny.
- THE SUN

'Key has the soul of a master poet trapped inside the body of a drunken tramp. With every turn of the page a new adventure into the weird and wonderful world of this abstract genius begins.'
- TIME OUT

'It is daft and surreal and genuinely laughter-inducing.'
- ID MAGAZINE

There’s a lot of charm to this anthology of strange and delicate delights, even if it’s off-the-wall nature may baffle a lot of readers, but if you’re open to something a little different – well, you can’t get much different than this.
- CHORTLE

It’s incredibly silly and laugh-out-loud funny. Reading it on the train is a battle of wills against your own face uncontrollably exploding in mirth.
- BOOK TRUST

It is very, very funny.
