Rula Lenska's 6 favorite books

Rula Lenska is an English actor who had roles in such iconic shows as Coronation Street, EastEnders, Doctor Who, One Foot In The Grave and Footballers' Wives. In the US she is better known for a hair products advertising campaign which spawned a running joke in Johnny Carson's monologue on The Tonight Show and a Saturday Night Live sketch where she was played by Jane Curtin. One of Lenska's six favorite books, as shared at the Daily Express:
MISERY by Stephen King

I have played in Misery on stage. It’s one of the most terrifying of all his amazing thrillers, where an unbalanced woman rescues a writer and makes him a prisoner.

Perversely I rather like being frightened. My sister and I love curling up in front of a horror film.

Misery is among Jake Kerridge's top ten Stephen King books, John Niven's ten best writers in novels, Emerald Fennell's top ten villainesses in literature, and Lesley Glaister’s top ten books about incarceration.
