Alison Windsor describes herself as a teaching artist with an interest in language, which is a neat shorthand for some of the kinds of things that she does. For the 56th Second-Hand Book Factory, she has flown from Sydney, Australia, to Athens, Greece, to talk to Charles Adrian about Kundera’s lightness of touch, the first play performed in (colonial) Australia and to swap stories about Paris. In the background you will occasionally hear the sound of next week’s guest, Erifili Stefanidou.
Another book by Georges Simenon, A Man’s Head, is discussed in Page One 115.
This episode features a jingle written for the podcast by the band Friends Of Friends; you can find some of their music here.
