Product description

Review

Well researched and wide-ranging . . . The Book of Forgotten Authors is a bibliophile's treat written with verve and passion. It will have readers scurrying into secondhand bookshops in search of yellowing paperbacks. (Guardian)

Full of humour and pathos, Christopher Fowler's survey of authors who have fallen into obscurity is a bibliophile's dream. (Financial Times)

A real gem, filled with old favourites and new discoveries, and written in a light, snappy, erudite tone, as satisfying as a full English breakfast at your local art-house cafe. (Joanne Harris)

A joyous saunter through the lives and words of yesterday's big names. Readers will love this fascinating book. (Cathy Rentzenbrink)

A sure-fire Christmas gift . . . charged with an irresistible passion for the world of the book. (Daily Telegraph)

A treasure trove of trivia . . . Excellent . . . This colourful compendium of literary lives should be read by anyone who loves books. (Evening Standard)
