One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
EMMA by Jane Austen

My desert island book. I love Emma. She's a precociously, stubbornly fantastic woman born in the wrong time. Austen was a social commentator and incredibly astute about human behaviour.

Emma is on John Mullan's list of ten of the best wines in literature, and among Judith Martin's five favorite novels and Monica Ali's ten favorite books.
