This month in books brings us fascinating memoirs from an Oscar-winning actress, a world-famous children’s author, an Orange Prize-winner – and best of all, an unknown nanny from Leicester. We also have the latest literary offerings from Margaret Drabble and Amy Tan, and the final installment in Elizabeth Jane Howard’s wonderful Cazalet Chronicles. You’d best start making your Christmas wish list now.
