Of Mice and Men or Brighton Rock – which are the 100 must-read novels? With such little spare time, why waste your time reading rubbish? And if you can’t be doing with all this reading malarkey, John Sutherland and Sam Leith will give you a 50-minute bluffers’ guide. Sutherland has read everything from The Golden Ass by Apuleius (AD160, for those of you who don’t know) to Dead Cert by Dick Francis. Sam Leith is a literary critic and the former books editor of The Daily Telegraph. He has written three very non-fiction books: Dead Pets, Sod’s Law and You Talking to Me?
