Robin Ince's Bibliomaniac Launch Event
Today is the day that Robin Ince's new book, Bibliomaniac, hits shelves around the UK so today's episode is a recording of the book's launch event which took place in East London on October 4th. Robin talks about the book and, well, a million other things because he was quite tired. This is an abridged version. A full filmed edition will be available for Patreon subscribers next week with an extra 30 minutes of material. Sign up at patreon.com/bookshambles.
On today's episode, Robin is joined by the multi award winning novelist Kamila Shamsie. They chat about her new novel Best of Friends, as well as how she knew from an early age she wanted to be a writer, letting go of books once they're finished and, obviously, the Clint Eastwood western musical Paint Your Wagon.

Sona Movsesian has been Conan O'Brien's personal assistant for over 13 years. By her own admission, she is terrible at her job. She's been a regular on Conan's TV shows, co-hosts his podcast and has now written her first book, World's Worst Assistant. And, as she tells Robin on this week's episode, it's all because she doesn't care. About her job that is, she cares a lot about wrestling and Bridgerton.

In the week that actual Liz Truss became the actual Prime Minister of the actual United Kingdom, could there be a more appropriate guest to have on the show this week than political columnist Marina Hyde? She chats to Robin about her new book, What Just Happened, (which is out in a few weeks), trying to be a voice of sanity amongst a world gone insane and why she really should just join the Conservative Party... An extra 15 minutes of chat this week for Patreons, as well as lots of other goodies and the warm glow you'll get from supporting the show! Sign up at patreon.com/bookshambles
