Forgotten Classics

Written by jen, 16th October 2009

Radio 4 is launching a new initiative through Open Book and the Classic Serial.

Mariella Frostrup will interview ten top authors on 18th and 25th October. Each author will pitch a classic book that they think has been unjustly neglected. Listeners will be asked to vote, with the winner being dramatised for the Classic Serial. Beyond that, though, Radio 4 are hoping to open up a big conversation about all those books and authors that somehow we've forgotten about, but which still provide a thrilling and memorable read.

More information soon on the Open Book website at Radio 4.

So, what forgotten classic do you feel's been unfairly abandoned?
