Invisible Ink Authors Become Visible
‘Forgotten Authors’, the column I write for the Independent On Sunday, is now appearing semi-regularly, whenever Katy Guest, the literary editor, can squeeze it in. One of the pleasures of writing this column is discovering authors I’ve never heard of, but who have been recommended to me by friends.
Lately, we’ve also been seeing the republication of some of the books I’ve mentioned, which is gratifying, and I sometimes get charming letters from the authors themselves, most recently Julia O’Faolain. Eventually I hope to gather together all these authors in a collection called ‘Invisible Ink’, which will also explore the reasons behind the disappearance of certain writers.
