Independent Bookshop Week 2024

Join us for an evening with award winning comedian, quizzing mastermind and national treasure Paul Sinha as he talks about his hilarious and moving memoir One Sinha Lifetime.

As a boy, Paul struggled to find his place in a world where he didn’t quite fit. Who was he? An over-achieving schoolkid with the world’s knowledge at his fingertips? A traditional Bengali son, destined for a career in medicine that he never once craved. A young gay man yearning to breathe freely? Or was he yet another flawed human being on a self-destruct mission?

Amid life’s mayhem, it was frequently Paul’s love of facts in which he found solace, whether funding his lifestyle through quiz machines or simply trying to show off to his mates. Stumbling serendipitously into both a career in stand-up and the clandestine network of competitive quizzers introduced him to a new sense of purpose, a new identity, and, eventually, new love…

A hilarious and moving coming-of-age memoir of one man’s search for fulfilment, One Sinha Lifetime is an unconventional odyssey through love, family, and the joy of general knowledge.

Paul Sinha is a beloved and perennial favourite of the nation’s teatime, frequently attracting millions of viewers on The Chase. In recent years he has also had a successful leap back onto the stand-up comedy circuit.

Don’t miss this chance to see and meet him ‘live’ in Oswestry as we celebrate the publication of One Sinha Lifetime.
