Author Jenny Colgan and writer-performer Steven Camden (Polarbear) talk about favourite books with Harriett Gilbert, including The Basketball Diaries and The Little Prince.

Author Jenny Colgan & writer/performer Steven Camden (Polarbear) talk about brilliant books with Harriett Gilbert. Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer is about a doomed attempt to climb Everest but will grip those with no interest in at all in mountaineering. The Basketball Diaries by Jim Carroll meant a lot to Steven when he was young - but how does he feel reading it again now? Harriett rounds things off with The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
