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?

Alan Sillitoe article

there’s an article on Sillitoe at,12084,1183500,00.html


sillitoe alleges that he wasn’t part of the Angry Young Man movement (he was in Mallorca), but his work definitely sits well with the work produced by the writers associated with that idea; he certainly belongs to the upsurge in working-class writing of the late 50s and 60s by both men and women.
