Repackaged for iTunes, here, from January 2013, is the 10th Second-Hand Book Factory. Charles Adrian is joined by Gloria Sanders, who describes herself as an actress and an explorer and whose beautiful poetry can be found here. Incidentally: the word 'Over-Soul', later much misused by Charles Adrian, makes its first appearance on the podcast during this recording.

(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.)

The original version of this episode is here.
