For the 18th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian’s guest is maker and cheerleader, the kinaesthetic Anna Sulan Masing. They talk about the artist’s acceptance of bad work, the wonder of clouds and the (laudable) appropriation of children’s stories by adults and vice versa.

Correction: When Charles Adrian mentions the ‘autocumulus lenticularis’ cloud, he is, of course, talking about ‘altocumulus lenticularis’.
