Joining Charles Adrian for the 94th Second-Hand Book Factory is bath-taker and cat-poker (also English poet and performer) A. F. Harrold. They talk about an iconic first page, some of the sadness of growing up and a couple of dubious creation stories.

Incidentally, my first visit to Tilehurst was to interview the comedian and podcaster Iszi Lawrence; you can hear our conversation here.

A. F. Harrold is author of The Imaginary and the Fizzelbert Stump series.
