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?
