Julian Ovenden's six best books

Julian Ovenden is an English actor and singer most recently seen as the dashing Charles Blake in Downton Abbey.

One of his six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
Milan Kundera

For some reason this book really speaks to me. I find it very moving and affecting, sad and full of wisdom.

I have read it three times and will revisit it again I'm sure.
Read about the other books on the list.

Lee Child called The Unbearable Lightness of Being "his private pick for the 20th–century novel that will live the longest." John Mullan includes it among ten of the best visits to the lavatory in literature. It is one of Olen Steinhauer's six favorite books.
