"What do you think of the ""Gadfly""? I wrote what I thought to P. [presumably Sydney Pawling of Heinemann] who rejoined gallantly. But it comes to this, if his point of view is accepted, that having suffered is sufficient excuse for the production of rubbish.[...] I don"t remember ever reading a book I disliked so much."
