Catriona James, theatre-maker and wayfarer, joins Charles Adrian for the last Second-Hand Book Factory of 2012. Cat introduces Charles Adrian to Neko Case and Ani DiFranco while he instructs her in feminist history. There is neither tinsel nor mistletoe and not a carol in sight, but listeners can imagine the people of the Wilton Way Café sipping mulled wine as they listen to chilled-out stories and songs.
Another book by Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, is discussed in Page One 11.
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is also discussed in Page One 138.
Another book by Robert Louis Stevenson, Travels With A Donkey In The Cevennes, is discussed in Page One 118, which features Cat’s sister Isbel James.
