Secret Library

Secret Library is a weekly-ish feature in which writers nominate three books they like that don’t get the attention they deserve. The only stipulations are that they have to have been published at one point in English and should not have the visibility of a classic – but the definition of classic is a little elastic (and also genre-specific): writers like Austen, Dickens, Christie and Chandler are out but we have welcomed Updike and Somerset Maugham.

Here’s the series so far:

Alison Baillie

David Barbaree

Quentin Bates

Stephanie Butland

Kjell Ola Dahl

Glen Ebisch

Sue Featherstone

Moira Forsyth

Johana Gustawsson

Paul Hardisty

Charles Harris

Paul Harrison

Lucy V Hay

Matt Johnson

J F Kirwan

Michael Stanley

Matt Wesolowski

David Young

Secret Library is taking a summer break and returns on 7 September.
