Stephanie Beacham's six best books

Stephanie Beacham, the English actor who played Sable Colby in Dynasty and Iris McKay in Beverly Hills, 90120, named her six best books for the Daily Express.

One title on the list:

I’m a big Ian McEwan fan. I’m reading his latest novel Solar at the moment but the book which really turned me on to him was Atonement. I love being transported to a different era and this masterly novel succeeds at every level.
Read about the other books on Beacham's list.

Last year Stephanie Beacham's list of best books was a little different.

Atonement also appears on John Mullan's lists of ten of the best breakages in literature, ten of the best weddings in literature, and ten of the best identical twins in fiction.
