Two noted wordsmiths engage in literary spat

by Jeremy Hooper

Wor2First, Dina Matos Mcgreevey blamed her tell-all book's poor performance on Jim, saying his claims that she was homophobic and that she knew he was gay before they married have hurt her sales. Now, Jim is countering those claims, saying Dina's "dull" & "poorly written" book and "her awful appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'" are much more to blame for the tome's poor performance:

McGreevey: Dina's poor book sales her own fault [Star Ledger]

Ah, yes -- that grand tradition of literary feuds. Mark Twain vs. Bret Harte. Ernest Hemingway vs. Gertrude Stein. Tom Wolfe vs. John Updike. Lillian Hellman and Mary McCarthy. And now, to that panteon we can add: McGreevey v. McGreevey.

But hey, McGreevey's (both current and past), look the bright side: Both of your works are sure to be far-less-interesting than your young daughter's 2025 work, Thanks To Their Public Spats And Revelations, I Know More About My Parents Then Any Child Ever Should. Now THAT one is going to be a page turner!
