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.

A.F. Harrold is author of The Imaginary and the Fizzelbert Stump series. You can find him on Tumblr here.

Incidentally, my first visit to Tilehurst was to interview the comedian and podcaster Iszi Lawrence for Page One 112.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams is also discussed in Page One 60.

Another book by W. Somerset Maugham, The Narrow Corner, is discussed in Page One 66.

Episode released: 30th August, 2016.
