And it was Paula Varjack! A slightly unusual Second-Hand Book Factory this week, recorded while Charles Adrian and his guest, the writer and performance-maker Paula Varjack, were in Edinburgh for the 2013 Fringe Festival. Given that they could not plunder their own shelves for books to share, they agreed to scour the second-hand bookshops of the city for a book that each thought the other should have. Perhaps this episode should be called the Third-Hand Book Factory.

Note: Paula’s (beautiful) Edinburgh show was called The Antisocial Network.

Martin Bengtsson, who is mentioned here, appears in Page One 58.

Another of Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley novels, Ripley’s Game, is discussed in Page One 76.

Episode released: 8th October, 2013.
