For the 91st Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined in London’s Russell Square by writer, actor, nerd and (whisper it) ex-gymnast Iskandar Sharazuddin. They talk about the swashbuckling founder of an independent dynastic monarchy, the shifting sands of identity and the creation of a ferocious emotional truth.
It is interesting to note, perhaps, how relentlessly noisy central London is.
