All authors have that one, famous book, the one that defines their entire career. When you think of Charles Dickens, you think of David Copperfield and Oliver Twist. When you think of Mary Shelley, you think of Frankenstein, and Charlotte Bronte is immediately associated with Jane Eyre. In this segment I read the lesser-known works of famous authors, as well as books that were popular in their own time but have fallen out of fashion.
