forgotten classics

'Reading neglected writers so you don't have to' A Time Out column and a blog for books that seem to be undeservedly forgotten, from John Galsworthy to Rose Macaulay, from Amos Tutuola to DH Lawrence, from W. Somerset Maugham to Fanny Burney. What books do you think we should revive? If you love a writer who has lapsed in popularity please let me know! Are my choices controversial?

Anything by Georgette Heyer
Laurie Lee, Cider With Rosie
Andre Gide, The Vatican Cellars
Edna O'Brien, Girl with Green Eyes
Lytton Strachey, Eminent Victorians (bitchy warts and all brilliance)
