Ben Miller and Danny Wallace

Comedian and actor Ben Miller and writer Danny Wallace choose their favourite books to discuss with Harriett Gilbert

Comedian, writer and actor Ben Miller chooses AA Milne's Winnie the Pooh as his favourite book to discuss on the programme along with that of writer Danny Wallace who chooses Diary of A Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith from 1892 because he says "it contains everything we like in Britain, punctured pomposity in people with ideas above their station". Their choices are complemented by Harriett's selection of the Children of Dynmouth, William Trevor's dark tale of a small seaside town and a disturbed child who creates havoc in the community.
Ben Miller's new book for children The Night I Met Father Christmas is published on November 1st. Danny Wallace is author of the recently published Hamish and the Terrible Terrible Christmas.
