Content Note: Towards the end of the podcast, Greg and Charles Adrian talk about the radio play The Air Gap, which Greg had starred in, and which told the story of Chelsea Manning. At the time of recording this conversation, Chelsea Manning was still known publically by her deadname, which is used during the conversation.
This is the fifth Second-Hand Book Factory and this week’s guest is writer and performer Greg Wohead. Greg and Charles Adrian stumble upon the limitations of Greg’s Texan accent, discuss reading Murakami and relive a little slice of the nineties. Oh, and they fail to agree on the pronunciation of Annie Proulx – any suggestions warmly welcomed. This is a lovely, gentle half-hour of chat with a seasoned storyteller, whose performances in various parts of the country you should definitely check out.
Another book by Haruki Murakami, Dance, Dance, Dance, is discussed in Page One 16.
This episode was recorded at the Wilton Way Café for London Fields Radio, which you can find out more about here.
