Also the author of Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love, Shaffer offers this wildly funny and shockingly true compendium of the bad boys (and girls) of Western literature, profiling such brawlers, misfits, boozers, lovers, and tortured geniuses as Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Dorothy Parker, Jack Kerouac, Hunter S. Thompson, and Bret Easton Ellis.
