Alice Lowe and Andrew Hunter Murray talk favourite books with Harriett Gilbert, including The First Bad Man by Miranda July and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson.

Writer, actress and filmmaker Alice Lowe and comedy writer Andrew Hunter Murray talk favourite books with presenter Harriett Gilbert. Alice's choice is The First Bad Man, the bizarre and hilarious debut novel by Miranda July. Andrew recommends Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day by Winifred Watson, a charmingly funny rags-to-riches tale first published in 1938. And Harriett champions The Millstone, Margaret Drabble's 1965 novel about a young, unmarried academic who becomes pregnant after her first sexual experience.

Produced by Mair Bosworth.
