Many people describe themselves as book lovers but there is no doubt about Nicholas Royle’s devotion to the printed word. As a writer, editor and creative writing teacher, books are fundamental to his life. Georgina Godwin meets Royle to discuss his new book. ‘White Spines: Confessions of a Book Collector’ is part memoir, part non-fiction and explores the secondhand shops that Royle used to build his 1,000-book collection of Picador fiction.
