'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?

The latest LFC is out in Time Out (on Julie Burchill of all people) and I’ll pop it up as and when. Just added a few links including the Manchizzle, my fave Manchester blog and 43, lovely writing about bus journeys (and winner of the Manchester Blogging Awards). The next column is going to be on Evelyn Waugh’s Vile Bodies and thereafter I’m uncertain, I think I want to go further back, possibly into the C18 or C19 (Fanny Burney, Charlotte Lennox or Walter Scott are in the forefront of my mind).
