26th September 2.30pm £9.50

Jenny Nibbingley and Burton Mastrick truly need no introduction.

Their novels have long been secretly well-regarded by those in the know, but rarely bought or read by the general public.

Today’s literary event promises to be an enlightening discussion of such essential books as Why Reigate?, Randoms, Hatred of Broccoli, and Only If I Have To.

Tim Timminey will moderate.

Book Signing to follow afterwards.

Well, that’s the plan anyway.

But when do things go to plan?

BookTalkBookTalkBook combines a parody of awkward live author events; an exploration of artificial intelligence and the creative process; a Beckettian live theatre experience, and an experiment in the limits of patience regarding card tricks.

With jokes.

Funny and wise, imaginative and original, this is a show you can’t put down.

Sorry, that was more of an observation than a question.

Described online as “an awkward joy,” “an extraordinary piece of work by all concerned,” and “a mandatory booking at every book festival in the country,” please book now for a very different afternoon of books and talks and books and talks and books.

His current show, Who Here’s Lost? is a funny and melancholy roadtrip of the soul.
