From a creative crisis to a dissatisfied editor, and from a bizarre twist of fate to an untimely death, behind each unpublished book lies a unique and compelling story. One of the giants of modern literature, Ernest Hemingway, saw three years of work, including a novel and several short stories, vanish when his wife's suitcase was stolen in the Gare de Lyon in Paris. Evelyn Waugh, on the other hand, burned the manuscript of his first novel and attempted to drown himself after a friend gave it a bad review.

Covering an eclectic range of international authors, both living and dead, The Greatest Books You'll Never Read unearths an alternative literary history that is fascinating and heartbreaking in equal measure.

Each ill-fated book, from Karl Marx's comic novel Scorpion and Felix to Stephenie Meyer's Twilightspin-off Midnight Sun, is examined in an in-depth essay, with selected entries featuring manuscript extracts.

Specially commissioned covers by acclaimed designers illustrate each entry, bringing to life these lost literary wonders.

At once entertaining and enlightening, The Greatest Books You'll Never Read will be loved by bookworms everywhere.
