The Bone People - Keri Hulme
(I read it on recommendation when it was 'new' but can't remember what it was about. Lookedup on wiki which said:-

"Hulme was turned down by many publishing houses before she found a small publishing house in New Zealand called Spiral, a collective of feminist women including Maori leader Irihapeti Ramsden.[2][3] In rejecting the manuscript, William Collins, Sons wrote:[4]

Undoubtedly Miss Hulme can write but unfortunately we don't understand what she is writing about."

Last para made me LOL.
