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.
