This song was inspired by Jamrach's Menagerie, a novel by Carol Birch, recently shortlisted for the Booker Prize. It was written and performed by The Bookshop Band on the 20th October, when Carol came into Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights to talk about her book.
The Bookshop Band were recently featured on BBC Radio 4's regular arts program, Front Row.
