Will Self and Rachel Johnson talk favourite books with Harriett Gilbert. Rachel chooses What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, a collection of Raymond Carver short stories. Will champions My Father and Myself, in which JR Ackerley details his father's secret life, and Harriett goes for Doris Lessing's first novel, The Grass is Singing. Self asserts that Carver's short stories were really the work of his editor, and that Doris Lessing's novel, which begins with a murder, shouldn't have included a murder. Let battle commence...
