David Mitchell visits Bath

Last night we attended a Mr B's event in Bath at the United Reformed chirch on Argyle street, which was an interesting venue.

After being regaled by the lovely Bookshop Band 

David Mitchell read from his new book - The Bone Clocks

and then Mr B interviewed him and the time just flew past as the erudite Mr Mitchell was never less than fascinating

We dashed to the front of the signing queue so we could escape early and try and catch up on the sleep we missed in York and got the book signed (having stupidly left his back catalogue at home) We did pick up a copy of the book he translated though (The reason I jump) and had a quick chat about it with him whilst his publicist nervously looked at the massive queue behind us.

Can't wait to start the book, although someone may have bagsied it first so I'll have to wait a couple of days...

The event was mentioned on Points West here (at around 19:56) worth a watch if you missed the Bookshop Band live ...

Another great evening in the company of Mr B's who really do put on superlative events.
