50 underrated novels

Interesting list from this Sunday's Guardian: How did we miss these? (see also Part 2). Fifty contemporary writers recommend "brilliant but underrated novels that deserve a second chance to shine". I'm pleased to see that two I recommended here are on the list: Alasdair Gray's Lanark and Russell Hoban's Riddley Walker. But I'm ashamed to admit that I only recognised about six of the remaining titles, and three of those because they'd been adapted for film or TV.
