The Chronicle

BETWEEN THE COVERS

-

BBC2, 7.30pm

WHICH book makes comedian and Strictly star Bill Bailey belly laugh in public? Which novel taught TV presenter Ade Adepitan about his heritage? And which Wind in the Willows character does actor Rebecca Front think she is most like?

The three stars join Sara Cox for this week’s book club, along with author Sophie Ward, who talks about her book, Love and Other Thought Experiment­s.

Crime writer Steve Cavanagh also presents a short film about his page-turner Fifty Fifty, about two sisters who accuse each other of the same murder.

And there’s bookish banter. Bill describes A Brief History Of Time in a very brief 30 seconds, using crisp shapes. Sara admits she slips a Jilly Cooper inside a Booker Prize winner.

If you’re like most people, you wish you made more time for reading, this charming little show might just be the incentive you need.
