Little read author?
I'm not sure what they teach for literature across the pond, but
here we got Dickens up the wazoo! I remember reading A
Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (at 100+ pages, this would be a
“short story” by Mr. Dickens) and finding it okay, but I was also forcefed
Expectations in 9th grade and hated it (and at 500+
pages, this would be a “novella”
for Mr. Dickens). But “little read author?”
