Back in the Wilton Way Café in Hackney, Dr Carly McLaughlin, Academic and Third-Culture Kid, joins Charles Adrian for the 21st Second-Hand Book Factory to talk about language, identity and displacement. She chooses some beautiful music and the two of them reminisce about a truly dreadful theatre show that they once saw together in Paris, despite which they remained friends.
Another book by Colm Tóibín, The South, is discussed in Page One 84.
