Vanessa Redgrave and Eileen Atkins
The two acting greats choose a biography of Sylvia Pankhurst and a fictional biography of a real life cat.
Vanessa Redgrave is 'in love with' Rachel Holmes' biography of Sylvia Pankhurst, Eileen Atkins has chosen a very different biography, Oliver Soden's imagining of the life of Jeoffrey, the cat who lived with the poet Christopher Smart 250 years ago. Harriett goes even further back in time with her selection, The Testament of Mary by Colm Tóibín.
