The editors of Brick magazine had the idea of celebrating the new century by asking their contributors for short essays about their favourite 'lost classics': books they treasured and would love to pass on to friends, but that are, for all intents and purposes, forgotten. The next issue contained thirty-two such essays - pithy, witty, passionate, surprising - which led to the idea of soliciting more, and celebrating them again with a book.

In Lost Classics you will find Margaret Atwood on sex and death in the scandalous Dr Glas; John Irving on The Headmaster's Papers by Richard A Hawley; Edmund White on The Story of Harold by Terry Andrews; Helen Garner on the delightfully sinister Australian children's epic The Journey of the Stamp Animals; David Malouf on Stendahl's Life of Rossini; Jeffrey Eugenides on The Pilgrim Hawk by G. Westacott; and much more.
