Lost manuscripts: ten best

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best lost manuscripts.

One author on the list:
James Michener

Bestselling author James Michener claimed that he dreamed one night in 1960 of writing an epic novel about Mexico. He duly researched and wrote most of the novel, before he misplaced the manuscript. It turned up 30 years later and Michener completed and published the saga.
