It’s a bumper edition this week! For this, the 49th Page One, Charles Adrian picks books and music more or less at random: A little bit of philosophy, a little bit of medicine, a little bit of fun, a little bit of historical romance, a little bit of nonsense. It is August when this first goes online so sit back, imagine the sunshine, let this wash over you.

An Evening With Samantha was part of PBH’s Free Fringe at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2013. You can find out more about Charles Adrian’s alter-ego Ms Samantha Mann here.
