We ask readers and writers about their favourite books. Louisa Young, author of My Dear I Wanted to Tell You and The Heroes’ Welcome shares her current favourite. In fact, Louisa had her choice with her, and produced it to order. She’d found it yesterday on a shelf of secondhand books for sale at the festival.
“I have a different favourite book everyday. Today it’s Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne Du Maurier. It was great to pick up a book by a Cornish author here, secondhand, in Cornwall. It’s beautifully written.”
