For the 23rd Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is at a Friday night British Museum Late with performer and barrister Sarah Le Fevre. A previous attempt to record this edition didn’t come off so the two of them jumped at the chance to meet and talk a second time, and to exchange another couple of books. Sarah is on fine form and the new books are just as perfectly chosen as the original two.
Sum by David Eagleman is also discussed in Page One 113.
