Chiswick Buzz filmed The Books That Built Me with Sasha Wilkins (AKA Liberty London Girl) at the Chiswick Book festival: click to see the video here
Sasha chose wonderful books to describe her life as a writer -
Madhur Jaffrey's Eastern Vegetarian Cooking - her bible at University, Madhur Jaffrey's brilliant recipes taught her the joy of cooking for friends and set her on the path to writing 'Friends, Food, Family'.
Alison Uttley - A Traveller In Time
Georgette Heyer - all of them, of course - we talked about Venetia, Frederica, Arabella, Sprig Muslin, and The Grand Sophy, amongst others
The Group - Mary McCartney
Alison Lurie - Foreign Affairs
A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness. Sasha loves this trilogy for what it says about the importance of being brave enough to recognise yourself for who you are.
