We are absolutely delighted the new series of BBC Two's Between the Covers has selected The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley - the incredibly debut from Sean Lusk - as part of their 12 book choices.
Hosted by Sara Cox, the six-part series celebrates the enjoyment of reading in a book club-style setting. In each programme, a different group of four famous guests brings along a book of their choice and discuss a newly published book. Hot on the heels of the Booker Prize, each show will also feature a title from the Booker backlists.
Among the guests for this season are Graham Norton, Amanda Abbington, Ruth Jones, Kae Kurd, Jenny Eclair, Stephen Mangan, Pam Ferris, Gabby Logan, Ugo Monye and Clara Amfo.
Amanda Ross, c.e.o of Cactus TV, who leads the book selection panel, added: "We are especially excited about this series’ new book selections because we are able to shine a light on a truly diverse mix of talented writers, including debut novelists. Our selections from the Booker backlist will encourage audiences to try some truly great books they may have missed out on."
The 12 selected books featured in the series will be labelled with "Between The Covers" stickers in shops, libraries and online. Audiences can read and join the conversation on social media using #BetweenTheCovers.
