Summer TV Reads

In Book Review, Miscellaneous on June 29, 2011 at 1:01 pm

We will be avidly watching and reading along with Channel 4’s TV Book Club.  The eight novels that will be reviewed are great beach reads. The presenters will once again be Jo Brand, Dave Spikey, Laila Rouass, Ade Edmondson, and Meera Syal, with one new presenter – comedian Rory McGrath.

New to this series are exclusive profiles of some of the world’s best-known authors, including Philip Pullman, Ken Follett, Jackie Collins, Joanne Harris, Jilly Cooper and Jacqueline Wilson.
