Tom Mathews has long been an admirer of Flann O’Brien, especially his famous Keats and Chapman sketches. Here Mathews brilliantly reinvents the style and wit of O’Brien’s short pieces. Previously printed in Hot Press, each is constructed around the punch line - an outrageous and absurd pun. The New Adventures of Keats and Chapman is a must for all fans of Mathews, Flann O’Brien and, indeed, for anyone who revels in the art of wordplay.
