50 Best Author vs. Author Put-Downs Of All Time

A great compilation of quotes by famous authors, trash talking about other, equally well-known authors, and literary rivals.

Jane Austen, according to Mark Twain (1898)

I haven’t any right to criticize books, and I don’t do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can’t conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone.

You go, Twain!
