Redmond's Question

In an award-winning article about "Wisteria Lodge," Edward F. Clark observed that the story is poorly understood because, among other things, "we don't read it very often" compared to the more famous and popular stories in the Canon. Are some stories in fact read more often than others? And if this is one of the more often neglected ones, why?
