He Used Thought As A Wife

Tim Key’s latest book, He Used Thought As A Wife, comes from the depths of lockdown.


When the award-winning writer, actor and comedian got locked down last year he refocused his fitful rudderlessness into writing about the insane developments that were setting in.  First he scribbled poems about events, or lack of them. And then he began to augment the poems with conversations. Phone calls, Zooms, yelled back-and-forths with passers-by. He scribbled these exchanges down. Sometimes verbatim, sometimes fabricated, often somewhere in between.


Emily Juniper, who makes the written word look beautiful, designed the book.
