Bernard Black runs his own bookshop even though he doesn't much like people who buy books and hates having customers. Next door to Bernard's shop is the Nifty Gifty gift shop run by Fran, probably Bernard's only friend in the world. When Bernard's accountant goes on the run Bernard employs stress victim, Manny to help in his shop. This leads to a series of surreal adventures around the shop.

Bernard Black is the foul tempered, eccentric and drink-fuelled proprietor of a grubby bookshop, Black Books. He is grumpy, very grumpy. He doesn't quite belong in this world and has created a sanctuary within the confines of the shop, preferring the company of books to people. Not that he sells many books. He loves them too much and doesn't love his customers enough. In fact he hates them. In fact he hates everyone except Fran and Manny.
It is only through the persistent intervention of his companions, Manny and Fran, that Bernard is persuaded to engage in any kind of social interaction at all (if you don't count drinking). Without them, he would undoubtedly collapse in a self-combusting pool of vitriol.
