Sanjeev Bhaskar's 6 best books

Sanjeev Bhaskar, a British actor who appears in Notting Hill and the forthcoming adaptation of Ken Bruen's London Boulevard, named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One book on the list:
To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

This was probably the first book I ever read. It touched upon racism in such a powerful way so it naturally left a huge imprint on me. It’s a beautifully written book and while it’s the author’s only novel of any note as far as I know, it’s a modern classic.
Read about the other books on Bhaskar's list.

To Kill a Mockingbird
also made John Mullan's list of ten of the best lawyers in literature, Lisa Scottoline's top 10 list of books about justice, and Luke Leitch's list of ten literary one-hit wonders.
