Nicholas Farrell's six best books

Nicholas Farrell is an actor who has appeared in films, plays and television shows including Chariots Of Fire and the TV series Foyle's War. He is appearing in Birdsong at the Comedy Theatre, London.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One title on the list:
The Cossacks
by Leo Tolstoy

This might be one of his lesser-known novels but I read it years ago and it had a profound influence on me. It’s about a Russian aristocrat who joins the army and is posted to the Caucasus where he falls in love with a local girl.
Read about the other books on the list.
