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?

Satanic Verses

I have read Satanic Verses and I loved it. I have to confess that it was not at all what I was expecting and that really it rivals Midnight's Children.... It was one of those books I thought I *should* read but not that I would actually enjoy it.
