Charles Moore and Nadifa Mohamed

Journalist and biographer Charles Moore and writer Nadifa Mohamed discuss their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert. Books on the table include Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.

Journalist and Margaret Thatcher's biographer Charles Moore and writer Nadifa Mohamed discuss their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert. Books on the table include Northanger Abbey, but which of the guests have never read Jane Austen? And what did they make of it? Also up for discussion is another gothic adventure, Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick de Witt, which Harriett has to defend against some incisive criticism from her guests. In an entirely different genre, The Hounding of David Oluwale by Kester Aspden re-examines the real life case of a homeless Nigerian man apparently hounded to his death by police officers in Leeds in the 1960s.
