The full-line up for series three of BBC Two’s Between The Covers has been revealed – and we’re so pleased that FINGERSMITH by Sarah Waters (Virago) has made the shortlist for the “Booker Gems”, a selection of Booker-shortlisted titles that didn’t win but still deserve to be celebrated.
Hosted by Sara Cox, the six-episode series kicks off at 7.30pm on 10th November and sees a panel of four famous guests discuss two books from the series reading list.
Here is the full list of shortlisted Booker Gems, in order of discussion on the programme:
Good Behaviour by Molly Keane (Virago Modern Classics)
The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald (Fourth Estate)
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid (Hamish Hamilton)
The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng (Canongate)
Fingersmith by Sarah Waters (Virago)
The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry (Faber and Faber)
