For this 24th edition of Page One, Charles Adrian takes us on a trip through his younger days and chickens out of doing an Irish accent – but how could he compete with the treacle-voiced Edna O’Brien? The music is all by Louis Armstrong and is likewise inimitable. What a treat!

The books from The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell are discussed in Page One 55.

Another book by Daphne Du Maurier, Not After Midnight, is discussed in Page One 45.
