Writers Gone Wild.
The Feuds, Frolics, and Follies of Literature's Great Adventurers, Drunkards, Lovers, Iconoclasts, and Misanthropes. Over 300 years worth of gossip about poets and novelists, political writers and comedians. Peschel has been collecting these stories for years. He says his only difficulty was deciding what to include. Of course our well-behaved Jane Austen is not in this book. And you'd expect to find Byron and Wilde. But you will find some surprises!
