Chris Rushby, Jarrold Book Buyer/Manager says:
"Christopher Fowler is a singular writer and a singular man: he has published over 45 novels and short story collections, including the acclaimed Bryant & May detective stories. He has written comedy and drama for the BBC, columns for the national press, graphic novels, the play ‘Celebrity’ and the ‘War Of The Worlds’ videogame for Paramount, starring Sir Patrick Stewart. He has released a (by his own admission) terrible Christmas single, been a male model and run a night club. He divides his time between London's and Barcelona. Now he has written The Book Of Forgotten Authors, a look at 99 writers who were once massively popular and are now largely forgotten. From Barbara Pym to Thomas Love Peacock this is a fascinating list and when you find in there that author you haven’t forgotten – and have got over your irritation at their inclusion - the book will inevitably send you back to writers you’ve forgotten about, but remember with great affection. This will be a fascinating evening."
