Eleanor Updale, Andrea Oliver
Books by William Trevor, Mohsin Hamid and Laura Esquivel are the favourites chosen by presenter Harriett Gilbert and her guests Eleanor Updale and Andrea Oliver.
Harriett Gilbert talks to children's writer Eleanor Updale and TV and radio presenter Andrea Oliver about the books they love.
Eleanor's choice is a deceptively simple, poignant novel by the Irish writer William Trevor: Love and Summer.
Andrea is a passionate advocate of Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel - the wildly romantic Mexican bestseller that was made into a film.
And Harriett sheds fresh light on one of the most influential recent novels about the meeting of East and West: The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid.
