Under the Radar: Books Not to Miss

It seems to me that there's frequently neither rhyme nor reason to which books garner tons of readers and which are read by only a few, devoted as they may be. Somehow, books in the latter category don't seem to register on the radar of public awareness. This is a shame, because in this large group of books, you'll find some of the most splendid reading (and writing) around.
