Claire Handscombe moved from Europe to DC in 2012, ostensibly to study for an MFA in Creative Writing, but actually – let’s be honest – because of an obsession with The West Wing. She is the author of Unscripted, a novel about a young woman with a celebrity crush and a determined plan, and the editor of Walk With Us: How The West Wing Changed Our Lives. She also hosts the Brit Lit Podcast, a fortnightly show of news and views from British books and publishing. Blog: the Brit Lit Blog. Twitter: @BookishClaire

An adult colouring book is the perfect stocking filler. It also doubles up as an activity you can quietly engage in once the big family dinner is eaten and everyone is kind of sick of talking to each other or your little sister has insisted on putting on a terrible film you don’t want to watch, bur you also don’t want to make a scene and leave the room. Instead, whip out the pencils and mentally travel to the UK with one of these 2017 colouring books.
