Julie Burchill and Fred MacAulay

Writer Julie Burchill and broadcaster Fred MacAulay argue about favourite books - including The Catcher in the Rye and Get Shorty - with presenter Harriett Gilbert.

Writer Julie Burchill and broadcaster Fred MacAulay argue about their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert. Fred loves The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger, but Julie, who used to love it, feels very differently about it on re-reading it now. Her recommendation is Alys, Always by Harriet Lane, which she says is the scariest book you will ever read. And Harriett introduces them both to Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard and waits to see what they make of it..
