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?

further suggestions

A few more really not particularly fashionable writers that we might revive:
George Bernard Shaw (surely due something - it is the 150th anniversary of his birth this year, is anyone celebrating?)
George Gissing
J.B. Priestley, Good Companions
Jack Common, Kiddar's Luck
HG Wells, The History of Mr Polly
GK Chesterton, The Napoleon of Notting Hill; The Man Who Was Thursday; The Club of Queer Trades
Arnold Bennett, The Old Wives Tale
