The Greatest Books You'll Never Read
Bernard Richards's survey of unpublished masterpieces by the world's greatest writers spans Western literature from Virgil's Aeneid and its 57 truncated hexameters to García Márquez's We'll Meet in August, a novel in limbo during the author's final years. The book gives detailed, richly illustrated and anecdotal accounts of unfinished, never started or lost works, among them Shakespeare's lost play, the manuscripts in Hemingway's mislaid suitcase, and the unfinished novel found in the wreckage of the car in which Camus died.
