Description

Bernard runs a book shop. Badly. Drunkenly. Grumpily. Manny tries to help run it better, but sort of ends up as Bernard’s, ahem, Manny servant. And then there’s Fran, who pops in… any time… she chooses… day or night… pop, popping in. This got BAFTAs. It’s got Dylan Moran. Bill Bailey. Tamsin Grieg. It’s even got Star Trek’s Simon Pegg. It’s dark. It’s edgy. And they never sell a book.
