About Christopher Fowler: The Book of Forgotten Authors
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder. It makes people think you’re dead.
So begins Christopher Fowler’s foray into the back catalogues and backstories of 99 authors who, once hugely popular, have all but disappeared from our shelves.
Whether male or female, domestic or international, flash-in-the-pan or prolific, mega-seller or prize-winner – no author, it seems, can ever be fully immune from the fate of being forgotten.
Fowler, as well as remembering their careers, lifts the lid on their lives, and why they often stop writing or disappear from the public eye.
Chaired by Roland Gulliver of the Edinburgh International Book Festival
