Round About Town

Round About Town is a work that can conjure fury at poverty, contempt for the poverty of mainstream popular culture and joy at its moments of poetic collapse.’ Mythogeography

‘There’s no story here, in this whole book, but there are glimpses of hundreds of stories.

It is funny, and unsettling, and comforting, often at the same time, and you don’t get to find out what happens next.’ Anna Wood, Caught by the River

‘Absurdity lurks around every corner.’

Michael Caines in The Times Literary Supplement,
9 November 2018

‘The funniest book I read this year was the one-man mass-observation of Round About Town by Kevin Boniface, a Yorkshire postman with a poet’s eye.’

Jeremy Noel-Tod, ‘Books of the Year 2018’ The Times Literary Supplement

This is a wonky, odd, occasionally bleak England, but also one full of heart and humour, in which life is just trying to get by.’
Gareth E. Rees, Unofficial Britain

Lost in the Post

‘Britain at its most odd and its most ordinary’ The Huddersfield Examiner

‘A revealing miniature glimpse of “ordinary” life’ The Guardian

‘Wonderfully observational’ The Big Issue

Lost in the Post will be a cult classic’ The Independent

‘Utter rubbish’ D.Allam via
