Vicious Nonsense: Quips, Snubs and Jabs by Literary Friends and Foes

The pen truly is mightier than the sword in this collection of over a hundred put-downs from the world's most respected writers on the topic of...each other! From Margaret Atwood to Samuel Beckett to Gillian Flynn, no-one is safe from the acerbic side of their fellow wordsmiths.  Curated from letters, essays and reviews this occasionally stinging, occasionally good-natured but always delightful collection will resonate with the armchair critic in us all.
