No Name – Wilkie Collins
John Simopoulos is back today with another in our occasional series of Books That Matter to propose that you spend a little time with “No Name” by English novelist, playwright, and author – Wilkie Collins. Written in the early 1860s, between “The Woman in White” and “The Moonstone”, “No Name” was rejected as immoral by critics of its time; but is today regarded as a novel of outstanding social insight, showing Wilkie Collins at the height of his powers. “One of the best books written in the 19th century”, says John.
