Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Virginia Woolf's first impressions of Katherine Mansfield were that she stank like a 'civet cat', and of W Somerset Maugham that he was a 'grim figure; rat eyed'. She herself was considered extremely 'untidy' by Rebecca West, who always took comfort that she would look smarter alongside the Bloomsbury author. As this wonderful collection of pieces shows, the predominant sentiments of writers' feelings towards fellow writers were those of rivalry, jealousy, hatred, bitterness and revenge; less apparent are admiration, magnanimity and affection. Beginning with Ben Jonson on Willilam Shakespeare and ending with Martin Amis on Nicholson Baker, French's book celebrates the extraordinary frission between hunderds of writers. Hugely absorbing and often wildly funny. (Kirkus UK)
