Here is my best explanation:

This clue might be a double definition.

'one who wrote nonsense' is the first definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I cannot see how one could define the other.

'the kid perhaps' is the second definition.
(kid is a kind of leather)

'about' is the link.
