A special vintage edition of Page One this week as Charles Adrian is joined by his little sister Lissa for the 28th Second-Hand Book Factory. 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, their shared appreciation for the playfulness of Jasper Fforde and opium.

Incidentally, Harry Potter fans might want to read this.
