Mariella Frostrup's six best books

Mariella Frostrup is a radio and TV presenter in Britain. She named her six best books for the Daily Express.

One book on the list:
Stars and Bars
by William Boyd

A hilarious account of a very British art dealer’s adventures with a bunch of eccentrics in America’s Deep South. There’s nothing to equal a book that brings tears of laughter to your cheeks and this early novel of William Boyd’s did exactly that.
Read about the other five books on Frostrup's list.

In 2007 Frostrup asked Gordon Brown, then the incoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, about his five all-time favorite books.
