Delderfield

Malaysian blogger YTSL offers an interesting comment on the eclipsed literary reputation of R. F. Delderfield, author of To Serve Them All My Days. Delderfield was, for example, a contemporary of Orwell, and was probably better known; today, he is nearly forgotten.

Sam Jordison speculates in his Guardian weblog that this might be the fate of many writers who now seem destined for immortality.
