Ciarán Hinds' six best books

Ciarán Hinds is Aberforth Dumbledore in the forthcoming Harry Potter movies and has played many other film roles.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One title on his list:
by James Joyce

A deceptively simple but beautifully written collection of short stories depicting Irish middle-class life.

The way people behave seems quite ordinary but slowly and delicately Joyce reveals everyone’s private anguish. It touches you to your core.
Read about the other books on Hinds' list.

Louise Penney would like to see Hinds in the lead role in the film adaptation of her Three Pines mystery series.
