Joss Ackland's six favorite books

Joss Ackland, distinguished English actor who has appeared in over 100 movies, played Andrei Lysenko in The Hunt for Red October and Arjen Rudd in Lethal Weapon 2.

One of his six favorite books, as told to the Daily Express:
by John Le Carré

My favourite novel of John le Carré’s and his most moving. There’s a touch of Graham Greene about his writing.

I did Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy on television and we were going to make this about the character I’d played but they couldn’t afford to. It involved going to seven countries.
Read about the other books on the list.

The Honourable Schoolboy appears among Jeffrey Archer's top ten romans-fleuves.
