Joining Charles Adrian for the 26th Second-Hand Book Factory is the improviser, comedian and (steampunk) Marxist James Ross. James shares the story of a standing-up that ended well, the two of them compare contrasting memories of the book Charles Adrian has brought for James, and they listen to one song whose title takes almost as long to say as the song itself takes to play.

Another book by Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard Of Earthsea, is discussed in Page One 108.

Christie Malry’s Own Double Entry by B.S. Johnson is also discussed in Page One 106.

This episode was recorded at The Bell in Aldgate for London Fields Radio.
