  • Summary

  • Six celebrities face their biggest challenge yet: to convince Daisy May Cooper to read a book.

    Daisy May Cooper (This Country, Witchfinder) is one of Britain’s busiest writers – but definitely not one of its keenest readers. She says she’d love to read more – but it’s hard to find the time. And anyway – the classics are just dull, outdated and boring. Aren’t they?

    In this new Audible Original series – Daisy’s first ever podcast - she’s invited six celebrity friends to try to covert her to books by telling her all about their favourite classic. She promises she’ll definitely read one of them by the end of the series. Maybe.

    So can Tim Key, Diane Morgan, Jamali Maddix, Nish Kumar, Katie Price or Alan Carr introduce her to a book that she will actually read?

    Between them they’re bombarding Daisy with some of the best historical fiction, classic murder mysteries and graphic novels ever conceived – but will anything persuade Daisy to put down her Take a Break magazine?

    It’s not going to be easy…

  • Ep 1: Tim Key
    May 10 2023

    Daisy’s Witchfinder colleague – poet, comedian and actor Tim Key has a strong literary bent. He’s chosen a 19th Century comic classic – widely loved by comedians, and often cited as the first sitcom character in literature. Daisy loves how the central character reminds her of Tim, and there’s pictures too! But is this Victorian masterpiece just too wordy to get on her “must-read” list?

  • Ep 2: Diane Morgan
    May 10 2023

    We’re staying in the late 19th Century for Cunk on Earth’s Diane Morgan. She’s chosen a classic novel with a strong political message, and an extraordinary backstory. Can Diane get Daisy to get behind this tale of the struggle of the working man? 

    Trigger warning – wanton eating of raspberries takes place throughout this episode. (Daisy trigger warning – this book is 391 pages long!)

  • Ep 3: Jamali Maddix
    May 10 2023

    Daisy’s Never Mind the Buzzcocks co-star has gone for a very different kind of ‘classic’. He’s brought one of the most iconic graphic novels of the 1990s. With wild stories, big characters, and plenty of gratuitous sex, drugs and gore, this could be just the book to get Daisy on board the whole reading thing.

Lots of honest laughter

I stumbled on this by accident and wow, like some of the greatest inventions (e.g post it notes and insulin), it was a very happy accident. Having binged listened the whole lot in one sitting, Daisy is her every funny, down to earth, self. Bringing the best out of the friends she's brings along for the ride. This DMC version of a book club made me laugh out load so many times, and all done without ever seeming rehearsed, scripted or having any sense of order, but it bloody works and is number 1 on my `Leaguer Board'. Go on, treat yourself to a smile or two ✌️

just want I need!

amazing concept, amazing, funny, keep the swearing!
as a ADHD and dyslexic person who also hasn't read a book since 2008 (GCSE) it almost convinced me to read again (more likely audio) some classics.

THANK YOU!
