A Brief History of Tim: The World Minus One Letter

Author(s): Kathy Clugston


Rather than explaining our origins, "A Brief History of Tim" addresses our history and culture at the level we most deeply desire - the trivial. By simply removing one letter, the world is tweaked with immensely enjoyable results: for those who think contemporary art is a load of rubbish, there's the Tat Modern. Find out about the Ancient Geeks, nerdy types who spent far too much time doing maths. "A Brief History of Tim" is laugh-out-loud funny and will have you looking at the world through fresh eyes.
