Is it worse to be forgotten than never known? BBC author Hephzibah Anderson reveals the reasons why several famous and successful authors have been forgotten and suggests that it's up to readers to keep them alive. Finding the out-of-print books in second-hand book shops is half the joy. Yes it is. Fortunately, we have several charity shops in our town that carry lots of second hand books, as well as a second-hand dedicated book store. And I love them all.
Personally, I would rather be forgotten than never known. At least then there's a chance of being found again.
