The Mr B's Bookshop

A mix of book chat and author conversations run from Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights, an independent bookshop in Bath, England. We begin with the books we're currently reading and let them guide us into the biggest and smallest of ideas: the niche, the essential, the wide-ranging.

Books discussed in this episode:

Reader, I Married Him Ed. by Tracy Chevalier

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie

Rasputin and Other Ironies by Teffi

The Book of Memory by Petina Gappah
