Written daily throughout the UK’s restrictions to combat coronavirus, Nail on the Head picks up directly from Pig's Ear, Dog's Dinner and takes us from the anniversary of the first lockdown, through the planned easing of regulations and up to ‘Freedom Day’ on 19th July 2021 (variants allowing).

Humorous, compassionate and with a principled political edge (and more than a passing interest in the European Football Championships, as you'd expect from the National Football Museum's poet-in-residence), this is Paul’s fourth and concluding documentation of a nation’s strength and wellbeing.

Illustrated by Chris Riddell OBE, Korky Paul and Martin Chatterton.
