Cerys Matthews' 6 best books

Cerys Matthews was the lead singer with the Nineties band Catatonia. She is on the judging panel of a new category of this year’s Dylan Thomas Prize, the Sony Reader Award For Unpublished Writers.

She named her six best books for the Daily Express. One title on the list:
The Thames: England’s River by Jonathan Schneer

I love rivers and being Welsh I knew a lot about Welsh rivers but not much about the Thames. This book goes right, right back and tells you how it not only influenced London but England itself. A fabulous read.
Read about another book on the list.
