Konnie Huq and Pat Kane
TV presenter Konnie Huq and Hue and Cry pop singer Pat Kane talk to Harriett Gilbert about the books they love and return to, works by Patrick Hamilton and Richard Sennett.
Konnie Huq is a former Blue Peter presenter and co-writer of an episode of Black Mirror. She joins Pat Kane, writer and singer of the group Hue & Cry, to talk about the books they love. Konnie's choice is Hangover Square by Patrick Hamilton, a dark novel of seedy low-life set in 1930's Earls Court.
Pat's is a treatise on work and the joy of simply making something, The Craftsman by Richard Sennett.
And presenter Harriett Gilbert chooses a disturbing but compelling satire on how far modern parents will go to protect their children, even after they have committed a terrible crime - The Dinner by Herman Koch.
