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.

When it comes to addictions, books and coffee may not be among the more serious, but they're definitely cravings which abound in the Mr B's team. Inspired by the publication of Smoking Kills by Antoine Laurain, we gathered a little stack of moving, surprising and off-kilter writing on addiction. Listen to Jess and Lucinda as they take you from sleazy Los Angeles dives to Hemingway's letters, then hear Antoine Laurain chat to us about his own writing routines. With bonus material in French!

Hosted by Jessica Johannesson. Music: ‘Just a Case of Fallling’ by The Bookshop Band.
