Janet Suzman's six best books

Janet Suzman is a South African actress and director based in England. She was nominated for an Oscar for her role in Nicholas and Alexandra.

She told The Daily Express about her six best books. One title on the list:
Contested Will
by James Shapiro

The foolish maidens who can’t bear to think that humbly born William of Stratford could possibly be the genius he was have been trounced by Jim Shapiro’s common sense and brilliant scholarship. It is all breathtakingly researched.
Read about another book on the list.
