ITT: Underrated writers

>>7677373
Well, he may be underrated on this board, but that doesn't mean too much...
I really like him. Though, I noticed that each time he is evoked, people are quite short of words to tell how he affects them (and I would have trouble telling how he affects me as well)
>>
>>7677373
Never heard of him. What's he known for?

A lot, but I believe the most famous is The Unbearable Lightness of Being

He is well known for sure but he doesn't get talked about as much as I thought he would here.

You know how translations are received here.

This man, for sure. I have yet to read anything of his I haven't loved.
Also, Mavis Gallant.

Not just underrated but sadly the most unknown author I know of.
>>
>>7677373
The Joke is fucking great. Had to read it for a history class, went in skeptical and came out a believer.

Also, John von Dorf for underrated. He's the most obscure writer I love.
>>
>>7677648
No and no.

>>7677725
Milk bottle H?
>>
>>7677734
Sup John, are you the hero we need?
>>
>>7677725

anywhere i can get his work for free?
>>
>>7677745
Yep. And its sequel, Ice Never F.
>>7677753
I've checked and found nothing. If there is a free download, it's one bitch to find. Thankfully, physical copies of Milkbottle H are really cheap, but if you want Ice Never F, you better have deep pockets.
>>
>>7677751
lol don't call me out like that. I'm currently writing the Funeral of a Hero.
>>
>>7677625
my nigga Maugham, I've been reading his short stories on and off, volumes 1&2 and considering getting into his novels. Is Of Human Bondage worth reading?
>>
kundera is middlebrow garbage. murakami tier. appeals to plebs/pseudointellectuals
>>
>>7677786
Is Gil Orlovitz gonna be the new meme?
>>
>>7678927
Agree with Murakami, but Kundera is clearly not for plebs
>>
>>7678964
No, hopefully not. But if there is one place where he could find his niche, finally, after time tried its hardest to drown him, make his name known to more than a handful of isolated nobodys, it's here, in this elitist, meme-addled hellhole that we all hate.
>>
>>7678927
Nice opinion.
>>
>>7679151
Let him be pal, this board is 70% shit-posting anyway.
Could you try to tell why you like/dislike Kundera instead?
>>
>>7677373
True. I discovered him through a song that was based off of one of his short stories.

Genre fiction is inherently goofy, and most times bad, I get that.
But this guy will blow your fucking mind with his sociological ideas.
Way ahead of his time, and I truly believe he was in contact with foreign entities, be that in a psychedelic trance or going insane.
