Robin Ince talks to Marcus Brigstocke

Bibliomanic: An Obsessive’s Tour of the Bookshops of Britain

Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

Books, books and more books: Robin Ince’s quest to discover just why he can never have enough books is one familiar to many a bookworm, and one he’s recorded in his book Bibliomaniac. Ince, co-presenter with Professor Brian Cox of the BBC Radio 4 show and podcast The Infinite Monkey Cage, shares anecdotes and tall tales from his tour of more than 100 bookshops, undertaken when the pandemic resulted in the cancellation of his stadium tour with Cox. From Wigtown to Penzance and Swansea to Margate, Ince talks to comedian Marcus Brigstocke about his epic journey, meeting book lovers and what he discovered about his own addiction to books.
