Jenny Eclair's six best books

Jenny Eclair is a comedian and novelist who was the first female solo winner of the Edinburgh Festival’s Perrier Comedy Award.

She named her six best books for the Daily Express. One title on her list:
by Curtis Sittenfeld

There’s nothing like a good beach read and my last holiday was made even more enjoyable by Curtis Sittenfeld’s book. The only off-putting thing about this novel was looking round and seeing so many other middle-aged women reading the same book. I’ve been a fan of Sittenfeld since she first wrote Prep years ago.
Read about the other books on Eclair's list.
