I lettori editor di case editrici, a caccia di buoni libri a buon mercato, saranno interessati alla presentazione del Guardian di 10 classici della letteratura anglofona quasi dimenticati (e anche da noi in gran parte assenti dai cataloghi). Come The Vet's Daughter di Barbara Comyns (1959), pubblicato da Virago. "Everyone should read Barbara Comyns. Graham Greene was a fan and so is Alan Hollinghurst. Plus, there is no one to beat her when it comes to the uncanny. The Vet's Daughter tells the story of 17-year-old Alice, who lives with her savage veterinary father (a 'terrible genie' in a waxed moustache and yellow gloves) in a horrible south London suburb. When she escapes his tyranny – she moves to the country, where she discovers a peculiar talent – Alice's life seems to be improving. But it can't last. A return to Daddy and his new wife and things grow nastier than ever. Nightmarish." guardian.
