reviewed Rotten Reviews: A Literary Companion on
"The history of literature is replete with foolish, mistaken, shallow and downright hostile reviews of books we now approach with awe. Endlessly entertaining and oftentimes enlightening, this collection features highlights from 175 nasty attacks on authors and on works that became classics."

Includes quotes on "Alice in Wonderland", "The Catcher in the Rye", "King Lear" and authors Ralph Waldo Emerson, Francis Bacon, Ernest Hemingway . . . etc.!
