Robin Ince is a singular treasure, and I think only he could put together a story like this in a way I’d thoroughly enjoy reading so much. On face value a narrative of his tour around Britain promoting his previous book, but so much more… a glimpse into the brain of an undiagnosed ADHD comic. A love-letter to independent bookshops. An exponential library-based incarnation of the 12 tasks of Hercules. Achingly human, but also well-clipped enough never to descend into mawkishness. And, a reading list that would last some people a lifetime. Loved it from start to finish.
