Literary Put Downs


Is there any better feeling than having a perfectly, elegantly worded put down? In real life, we never have them ready when we need them, but that’s what can be so satisfying about being a writer – your characters ALWAYS know what to say and when to say it. Ammiright?

The on-line magazine Stylist out of the UK put together a list of what they think are the 50 best literary put downs.

Take a look and let me know in the comments if you agree or which ones you think they missed.
