Miriam Margolyes's 6 best books

Miriam Margolyes played Professor Pomona Sprout in a couple of the Harry Potter movies.

One of her six best books, as told to the Daily Express:
Little Dorrit
by Charles Dickens

I fell in love with Dickens at school and this is my favourite book, coloured with the darkness of his childhood experiences of prison.

It’s a sharp tale of betrayal, greed and cruelty with twists and turns. It also has one of the most powerful portraits of a lesbian in literature.
Read about another novel on the list.
