Sarah Hall and Owen Jones
Journalist and writer Owen Jones and novelist Sarah Hall discuss their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert.
Owen Jones picks the book which gave him nightmares in his teenage years: Brother in the Land, by Robert Swindells, a post-apocalyptic novel set in the North of England.
The thrill of flying, grief and the consolations of fiction are rendered in beautiful style in Sarah Hall's choice: American writer James Salter's memoir Burning the Days.
And Owen and Sarah are transported across Europe into the dark heart of the English countryside in Harriett Gilbert's pick - the page-turning Rogue Male, by Geoffrey Household, a prototype for Bond, Bourne, and many others.
