Hahahaha! I cannot contain my laughter as I read through this really hilarious collection on Flavorwire of 30 great author-on-author insults. It’s simply fantastic and I had to share it with you all. As Emily Temple states, authors nowadays simply “don’t insult each other like they used to.” With such elegance and creativity behind their words, it’s like it used to be a sport!
Please take a little bit of time to click through this article and find some good ol’ insults. Let me point out two of my favorites:
William Faulkner on Ernest Hemingway: “He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary.”
Truman Capote on Jack Kerouac: “That’s not writing, that’s typing.”
So enjoy my precious followers! And pass it on :)
