Shaun Bythell

The Diary of a Bookseller: One Year On

Festival Marquee
Sat 22 Sep

Wigtown bookseller Shaun Bythell’s diary paints a hilarious portrait of one grumpy secondhand bookseller, his mutinous staff, infuriating customers and even more annoying cat. Since its launch at the 2017 festival, it’s been translated into 18 languages, hit New Zealand’s bestseller charts and become a cult Russian hit. He talks about his memoir and a year to remember.
