Description du Livre

They were popular, influential and often hugely successful, but then they vanished from bookshelves, even in their own lifetimes.

There are a great many authors we grew up with whose books became touchstones in our lives, who have simply disappeared. Adopting false identities, switching genders, losing fortunes, descending into alcoholism, discovering new careers, the stories of the missing authors are often more surprising than any of the fictions they wrote.
But their books live on in our homes and our memories. They’re passed to our children, to our friends, to secondhand shops. And sometimes they surprise everyone by revealing their secrets…

These are the extraordinary stories of over one hundred forgotten authors. Some chose their own fates, some were simply unlucky, but many should be remembered and revered by all book lovers.

Leur Miracle de Noel était le meilleur livre que j’ai jamais acheter. Leur Miracle de Noel a fait exactement ce que tu as dit qu’il faisait.
