For the 92nd Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by passionate, itinerant generalist and creative (on the interior) Isbel James. They talk about skewed perspectives on familiar places, fiction that feels like memoir (and vice versa) and the descriptive power of Robert Louis Stevenson’s writing.

The photograph that is discussed is, in fact, Tove Jannson’s niece Sophia sitting with her (Sophia’s) grandmother, who was Tove Jannson’s mother.
