His literary criticism is notable for its harsh views of Vladimir Nabokov. Art for Art's Sake and Literary Life was so negative in its assessment that Publishers Weekly described it as a "bilious analysis" of the Russian writer. Bell-Villada explains the animus by saying that he himself is a "lapsed disciple" of Nabokov.
