Submit your beloved but unknown author to Writers No One Reads, a Tumblr blog dedicated to lost writers. It’s the perfect site for uncovering weekend reading material.

Here’s one of our favorite entries: “No one reads Polish avant superman Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, a.k.a. Witkacy (1885 – 1939). Publisher description of his first play, Maciej Korbowa and Bellatrix (1918): “A psychotic guru known as the Master, Maciej Korbowa, aided by his gender-shifting alter-ego Bellatrix, presides over a secret club of disciples addicted to drugs, alcohol, and sado-masochistic orgies and leads this band of metaphysical desperados and decadent artists no longer able to create on a philosophical quest for absolute Nothingness — until he finally betrays them all to the revolutionary Sailors of Death.”
