Then I discovered Winnie-thePooh, where everyone’s not dying of cholera. They were old-fashioned books but relevant in terms of how characters viewed the world.

Now I’m writing my own children’s books. 


This was a revelation.

I listened to it on the radio and love the absurdity that, way down the line in human development, the same things apply: if there’s a crisis, wrap your head in a wet towel.

It’s surreally brilliant.

A KISS BEFORE DYING by Ira Levin Corsair, £8.99 My first grown-up novel, a thriller about a guy who kills his girlfriends. Levin’s Rosemary’s Baby scared the bejesus out of me but this was a real page-turner.

You really engage with the characters and the tangled web of a story. 

LOSING MY VIRGINITY by Richard Branson Virgin Books, £11.99

A fantastic autobiography of starting from nothing, making it, losing it then building it back up.

I style myself as an entrepreneur so learnt from him. You have to throw a lot of mud at walls for things to stick and you can’t give up. 

YES MAN by Danny Wallace Ebury, £8.99

Part of a genre I call modern off-the-wall, by writers who set each other crazy challenges.

Wallace credits Homes Under The Hammer as the inspiration for this as he was in a downward spiral watching daytime TV, then decided he needed to get out so started saying yes to everything.

Spectacularly funny. 

NEITHER HERE NOR THERE by Bill Bryson Black Swan, £8.99

When I was 18 my friend Roger and I set off a trip round Europe.

Years later I discovered this about Bryson’s travels round Europe and recollected my monumental trip and the joy of that freedom.

My introduction to his wonderful writing and humour.
