Beginning with an inaccurate prediction, this (half-hour) show focuses on a few classics of modern English literature. Being a September show, Charles Adrian bills it as an overdue back-to-school special but discovered after the fact that he could have been pretending to celebrate International Book Week. Still, it’s all of it just an excuse to open up some beautiful books and to play some brilliant music. Listen! Enjoy! Tell your friends!

Another book by Virginia Woolf, Orlando, is discussed in Page One 47.

The Fellowship Of The Ring by J.R.R. Tolkein is also discussed in Page One 73.
