The Mr B's Podcast

We invite you to turn your laptop on, plug in your earphones, and spend (up to) 20 wondrous minutes in the company of books and the Mr B’s Team. Our monthly podcast comes to you in two forms: in our Mr B’s at Home episodes our Jess meets up with two members of the team who will tell you all about their favourite books of the moment, and treat you to a short excerpt from a few of them to tease your reading taste buds. ‘Mr B’s Guests’ is our series of recordings with guest authors - perfect if you’re far away from Bath and missing that Mr B’s event feel! Whether on a train, on your morning run or - why not - in the bath (as long as you keep your electronic devises dry!) our short podcast is the perfect companion for a busy book-loving life.

Christmas time is approaching and so is the Mr B’s Christmas catalogue. Tom’s favourite book of the year, featured in the catalogue, is a novel set in Spain, written in Swedish and translated into English. Breat Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs is an inventive, edgy and darkly humorous tale in which the protagonist doesn’t get a voice of her own, and in which everyone is always telling a story about someone else. Lina Wolff, its author, came to the shop earlier in the year and sat down to chat to Jess about brilliant girls in literature, Spanish gossip, and why there are no Swedish characters in her novel.

Books mentioned in this episode:

Bret Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs by Lina Wolff

Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Nightwood by Djuna Barnes

The Saga of Gösta Berling by Selma Lagerlöf

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes

Music by The Bookshop Band
