Joining Charles Adrian for the first Page One of the new year is Gloria Sanders, who describes herself as an actress and an explorer. A little raucous in parts, a little subdued in others, this tenth second-hand book factory is made up of talk about maps, locked-in syndrome and the over-soul. Music is by Ella, Johnny and Billie.
(Correction: Jean-Dominique Bauby dictated his story not to his wife, as claimed by Charles Adrian during the course of this episode, but to ghost writer Claude Mendibil. More information about that here.)
This episode was recorded at the Wilton Way Café for London Fields Radio, which you can find out more about here.
