Brilliant, but underrated

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007 | You Call This News?

Lesser-known novels from both sides of the Atlantic that you should consider reading, chosen by critics and authors.

I’ve not heard of most of the books chosen by the English, but I’ve read a few of the American choices (in fact, I’m reading Ali Smith’s The Accidental right now). So far, the ones I’ve read have all been worth the time. I’m hoping I’ll find a few others out of these lists that pique my interest. One can never have too many books to read. (However, when it comes to moving day, “too many books” is an entirely different thing.)

Tim — I made a slight edit to your comment ‘coz the URL was running off the right side of the page. :)

I’ve heard Noon’s stuff is good. I’ll have to check it out.

Debt To Pleasure is a marvelous piece of British Camp. A must read. (Ostensibly a food book, that unfolds the pyschopathology of the author).
