For the 65th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by performance artist, writer and musician Nick Field. It may have been a tactical error to sit outside, at a café not far from Victoria station in London, where the background noise from taxis, buses and other voices threatens to overwhelm the conversation at times. Oh, and you will hear the microphone somersault off its improvised mic stand at one point. It is nearly the summer holidays for Page One; everything is falling apart. But the episode is still worth listening to. Promise.
Another book by Tom Spanbauer, In The City Of Shy Hunters, is discussed in Page One 122.
Another story by Junot Diaz, Otravida, Otravez, is discussed in Page One 129.
This episode features a jingle written for the podcast by the band Friends Of Friends; you can find some of their music here.
