For the 105th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined in Peckham Rye by consultant and project manager James Bottomley. They talk about some classic, visceral, virtuosic poetry, some classic British comic writing and some terrifyingly topical American counterfactual writing.

At the time of recording, James Bottomley shared a flat with Page One super-guest Vera Chok. Vera’s most recent episode, at the time this episode was released, can be found here.

Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis is also discussed in Page One 25. Another book by Kingsley Amis, The Anti-Death League, is discussed in Page One 9.

Episode released: 2nd May, 2017.
