What are the top literary fistfights?
Guardian books writer Sam Jordison spoke on the phone to AnnArbor.com's intrepid police reporter, Kyle Feldscher, who noted that a so-far-unconfirmed rumor identifies the specific topic of the dispute as the relative merits of fantasy authors J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
In a very entertaining post, the Guardian writer has some fun with the idea of literary arguments — and then asks the post's readers to weigh in as well. Which they do, heartily.
The entire post, comments and all, is well worth a read; find it here on the Guardian website.
And FYI, Kyle promises to follow up if we can ever confirm the subject of the initial dispute.
