I have noticed that the vintage revival movement has been sorely lagging in reviving popular novels of the period. I've always read vintage novels and have never really gotten into reading modern novels. I think the last modern novel that I've read for fun was The Liar by Stephen Fry (I've been meaning to get around to reading his other novels) and that was a couple of years ago.
Therefore, I'm going to do a weekly post on Thursdays of a vintage novel (or novella) and include how it was received when it came out and review any adaptations made of it.
My first selection will be up tomorrow, sometime in the late afternoon.
