The critic and biographer Richard Bradford gives detailed accounts of some of the most fraught relationships between writers, among them Wordsworth and Coleridge, Thackeray and Dickens, and Nabokov and Edmund Wilson. He describes the bones of contention and bitter exchanges, but also considers the effects of these feuds on the writers' work. Other chapters relate more aggressive encounters, such as Leavis's attack on CP Snow, and selections of quotations reveal real literary venom.
