Bibliomaniac: An Obsessive's Tour of the Bookshops of Britain
Finishes at: Saturday 28 October 3:00 PM
Whilst many of us used the pandemic to catch up with reading, Robin Ince used it to catch up with the books themselves! Robin’s planned stadium tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed so, rather than do nothing, he embarked on a tour which took in more than one hundred bookshops - from Edinburgh to Penzance, from Swansea to Margate.
Packed with anecdotes and tall tales, Bibliomaniac follows Robin up and down the country in this magnificent quest to discover just why he can never have enough books. This is a story of addiction, romance… and occasional points failure just outside Oxenholme.
As well as the bookshops of Britain, Robin has toured the world with his award-winning stand-up. He is also co-presenter of the hugely successful radio show The Infinite Monkey Cage.
‘A book-lover’s book-lover.’
