Marian Keyes and Nina Stibbe (I'd like to live in a cave, covered in fur)

Bestselling authors Marian Keyes and Nina Stibbe go head to head in a war of the words in a bumper episode of Book Off.

They shower admiration on to each other and their new books, "Again, Rachel" and "One Day I Shall Astonish The World" which they discuss with Joe Haddow.

They also talk about their writing, inspirations, friendship, sex in older age, taking the waters in Bath, writing a sitcom and fabulous funny females.

We get their recent book recommendations, and in the Book Off they pit "Gravity Is The Thing" by Jaclyn Moriarty against "The Fortnight In September" by R.C. Sherriff, but which one will win???
