Tim Vine's six best books

Tim Vine is an actor, writer and comedian who won the prize for the funniest joke at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One title on the list:
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

I love Ishiguro’s novels and this is perhaps his finest hour. It’s a story of lost love in a way but at the same time is romantic and terribly moving. The film of the book, starring Anthony Hopkins, is brilliant but the book is better.
Read about the other books on Vine's list.

The joke that won Vine the prize at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe: "I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again."

--Marshal Zeringue
