The summer is here! Really! It is! In preparation, we take a short trip to the States and through a small part of Western Europe in this, the fourth edition of Page One. You are again treated to Charles Adrian’s masterful, if geographically ambiguous, American accent and he even reads in French. It is a treat. There is some beautiful, calm, velvety music in this programme so make sure you are somewhere quiet when you listen. Perhaps you could listen to it at home and then listen to it again once you are, yourselves, on holiday.

Soon after this episode was first released, Charles Adrian took his alter-ego Ms Samantha Mann to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. You can find more information about Ms Samantha Mann here.

Another book by Sinclair Lewis, Cass Timberlane, is discussed in Page One 59.

This episode was recorded at the Wilton Way Café for London Fields Radio, which you can find out more about here.
