Robin Ince

Bibliomaniac

An Obsessive’s Tour of the Bookshops of Britain

Why play to 12,000 people when you can play to 12? In Autumn 2021, Robin Ince’s stadium tour with Professor Brian Cox was postponed due to the pandemic. Rather than do nothing, he decided instead to go on a tour of over a hundred bookshops in the UK, from Wigtown to Penzance; from Swansea to Margate.

Packed with witty anecdotes and tall tales, Bibliomaniac takes the reader on a journey across Britain as Robin explores his lifelong love of bookshops and books – and also tries to find out just why he can never have enough of them.

It is the story of an addiction and a romance, and also of an occasional points failure just outside Oxenholme.

“A unique, funny picture of Britain… A love letter to bookshops and the vagaries of public transport.” — Richard Osman.

Meet Robin Ince at The Wanstead Tap on Tuesday 4 October at 7.30 pm.
