Battling background noise in the foyer of the Almeida in London's Islington, Charles Adrian takes screenwriter and playwright Erik Patterson through his first ever (broadcast) podcast. They talk about the world as a playground for imperial Brits and the surprisingly immediate appeal of a Russian classic.
Another book by W. Somerset Maugham, The Razor’s Edge, is discussed in Page One 120.
For anybody who is interested, the Frug is demonstrated here.
The Vera mentioned is Vera Chok, longtime friend of the podcast, whose latest appearance at the time this episode was released was Page One 52.
Episode released: 21st January, 2014.
