Honor Blackman's six best books

Honor Blackman is best-known as Cathy Gale in The Avengers and Pussy Galore in the James Bond movie, Goldfinger.

For the Daily Express, she named her six best books. One title on the list:
The Grapes of Wrath
by John Steinbeck

This is one of those stories which moves your heart and stays in your mind forever. Steinbeck is one of the best-loved American authors of the 20th century and this book, about a family forced to head west in search of the promised land, is wonderful.
Read about another book on Blackman's list.

The Grapes of Wrath also appears on John Mullan's list of ten of the best pieces of fruit in literature.

See the opening title from The Avengers at The Rap Sheet.
