    This beautiful book contains a treasure trove of 99 overlooked or forgotten writers, each given their own utterly inviting, hard-to-resist potted history by Christopher Fowler. Take French novelist Pierre Boulle who wrote Bridge on the River Kwai, followed by Monkey Planet, which was reissued (and filmed) as Planet of the Apes. Other forgotten authors will spark recognition in some: Virginia Andrews, author of gothic incest blockbuster Flowers in the Attic; self-deprecating historical romance writer Georgette Heyer; and cult hero Kyril Bonfiglioli, creator of the Mortdecai novels, adapted for a ‘horrible film’ with the ‘entirely inappropriate Johnny Depp’. A booklover’s delight
