Justin Webb and Frances Fyfield

Justin Webb and Frances Fyfield tell Harriett Gilbert about the books they love, including Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner, which is a great American novel you've probably never heard of. Stone's Fall by Iain Pears goes back from London in 1909 to Paris in 1809 to Venice in 1867, to solve the mystery of a rich man's suicide. And Seeking Whom He May Devour by Fred Vargas (popular French crime novelist Frédérique Audoin-Rouzeau), creates a gently funny and oddly believable world of its own in the French Alps, a world in which wolves are eating the local sheep - or are they?

Producer: Beth O'Dea.
