Joining Charles Adrian for this Advent edition of the second-hand book factory is Giorgis Hadzilacos, a tall, Mediterranean hydrologist who hopes that his family won’t mind too much that he woke them up at 6am this morning. Giorgis reads to us in Ancient Greek and talks about travel, poetry in prose and the dangers of living in dark London town.

The first time Charles Adrian tried to record a conversation with Giorgis, technical problems meant that the recording was lost; this is the second attempt.

This episode was recorded at the Wilton Way Café for London Fields Radio, which you can find out more about here.
