Thank goodness for David Lammy! I was really pleased to see his choice of book that made him laugh.
Usually even that question in the Guardian Review’s questions to writers gets a ‘worthier’ response. But here was a grown-up, a politician, willing to mention a silly – but funny – picture book.
I remember Who’s in the Loo? by Jeanne Willis. Like all her picture books it’s both funny and seriously sensible. And I have my own personal interest in toilets, making it a lot more relevant than some.
In fact, most of the books mentioned by David are more normal than I have come to expect.
The book that changed my mind: That’s easy for me. it was ‘The Female Eunuch’ by Germain Greer
Changed your mind in which direction, Odette?
