Great Authors who are ignored probably because they haven't been on a reality show

I like to assemble the first seven or so titles from an author's body of work, using charity shops, readitswapit, Amazon Marketplace sellers, the library etc., line them up, and then read them in order.

The Cement Garden and the short stories are excellent, as are the longer works (The Child in Time, The Innocent & Enduring Love.) I like his second, The Comfort of Strangers, though most will agree it's probably the least of his novels. Black Dogs is OK, but is probably best read straight after The Innocent. I haven't really liked anything McEwan's done since Atonement, I'm sorry to say.

What A Carve Up! is an excellent choice - and I envy the reader who's never read it before.

I saw Any Human Heart on tv a couple of years back, then I read it and have read some more books by William Boyd. I've found him quite good so far.
