Harriett Gilbert talks to Brendan O'Neill and Gabriel Gbadamosi about their favourite books, from Graham Greene to a wild new twist on the Sherlock Holmes story to a Norwegian classic...

Brendan O'Neill, editor of the online magazine Spiked, chooses a late and rather different Graham Greene - Monsignor Quixote.

Writer Gabriel Gbadamosi recommends a little-known but compelling Norwegian classic: The Ice Palace by Tarjei Vesaas.

And presenter Harriett Gilbert's choice offers a new perspective on Sherlock Holmes. It's The Last Sherlock Holmes Story by Michael Dibdin, author of the Aurelio Zen detective series.

Producer Beth O'Dea.
