Joseph Fiennes' six best books

Joseph Fiennes is an actor best known for his roles as William Shakespeare in Shakespeare In Love and Robert Dudley in Elizabeth.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One novel on the list:
The Master and Margarita
by Mikhail Bulgakov

I read this when I was 18 and dressing at the National. The writer’s imagination is vivid and enthralling.
The Master and Margarita is one of Daniel Johnson's five best books about Cold War culture. It's also a book that English actor and writer Stephen Fry tries to read as often as he can.

Read about the other books on Fiennes' list.
