Kiran Chauhan, fun-time carpenter and serial enthusiast, joins Charles Adrian on Hampstead Heath for the thirty-third second-hand book factory. In this edition, Charles Adrian is a little condescending on the subject of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and Kiran tells the story of his discovery of Kings of Convenience. There is also the most beautiful slice of Joni Mitchell.

Lissa, who is mentioned towards the end, is Charles Adrian’s younger sister; his interview with her is Page One 41. And James, whose birthday is the 5th of August, which is the day this episode was first published, is Kiran’s partner.

The book that Kiran would have liked to have talked about is Silence In October by Jens Christian Grøhndahl, which is discussed in Page One 22.

Another book by Viriginia Woolf, To The Lighthouse, is discussed in Page One 5.

Other writing by Margaret Atwood is discussed in Page One 86 (Forty Years Ago And Forty Years Ahead), Page One 95 (Hair Jewellery) Page One 108 (The Edible Woman) and Page One 146 (The Penelopiad).

This episode was recorded on Hampstead Heath for London Fields Radio, which you can find out more about here.
