Rediscoveries, edited by David Madden
Crown Publishers, 1971


“The purpose of Rediscoveries,” David Madden writes in the introduction, “is to pay attention, at tribute, to works that are not known, even to many discriminating readers. Listening to writers talk about some of their favorite reading is in itself enjoyable, and these essays will have special appeal for readers who want to discover writing that current literary fashions neglect. The contributors would argue that the works discussed here are as “relevant” as better-known novels because they have retained their value as literature in every lasting sense of the term.”
