Charles Adrian is joined this week by his younger sister Lissa, who brings smooth music and good chat. Between sips of tea and mouthfuls of cake at the Chiswick House Café, they discuss their suspicion of people who haven’t read Harry Potter and their shared appreciation for the playfulness of Jasper Fforde; Lissa, after some deliberation, introduces Charles Adrian to a world of opium.
