Hermione Norris's six best books

Hermione Norris is the actor known for her roles in Cold Feet, Wire In The Blood, Kingdom, and Spooks [US title: MI-5].

One of her six favorite books, as told to the Daily Express:
Regeneration by Pat Barker

Her vivid portrayal of life in the war was so harrowing it moved me to tears.

What fascinated me was the psychology of what those men went through, their response to the trauma and their treatment when they came back from war having seen what they’d seen. Compelling and brilliant.
Read about the other books on the list.

The Regeneration Trilogy is on William Skidelsky's list of the 10 best historical novels.
