Henry Winkler's best books

Henry Winkler, 64, is best known for playing The Fonz in the cult Seventies American sitcom Happy Days.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One novel on the list:
Cold Mountain
by Charles Frazier

Thrillers might be my great love but I was blown away by this moving historical novel about a wounded deserter in the Confederate Army who walks for months in a bid to track down the great love of his life. The film’s good but the book’s even better.
Read about the other five books on Winkler's list.

Cold Mountain also appears on Tunku Varadarajan's five best list of the most delectable combinations of fiction and food.
