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?

eeek! haven’t done owt for ages, far too much on with remembered books to spend time here. I’m currently reading The Name of the Rose, which is about books which should never be remembered (or possibly that should never be forgotten) and also reading Graham Greene’s Ministry of Fear for Time Out, which is masterly. I’m also in the early stages of planning a column for the new Time Out Manchester (wahey!) on ‘Manchester Classics’ so any suggestions as ever welcome…..
