Great Literary Friendships



Read more



This book explores twenty-four literary friendships and, together with character studies and publication history, describes how each key relationship influences character, determines plot, promotes or disguises romance, preserves a reputation and sometimes even results in betrayal. It offers a fresh insight into some classic pairings and encourages us to reflect on our own friendships, developing a greater appreciation for those who are there for us through thick and thin.


Including a broad scope of literature spanning a period of 400 years from writers as diverse as Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, John Steinbeck and Alice Walker, this book is the ideal gift for a literature-loving friend.
