Andrew Shaffer's Literary Rogues is an unflinching look at the bad behavior of some of our most beloved authors, from Oscar Wilde and Edgar Allan Poe, to Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, to Hunter S. Thompson and Bret Easton Ellis.

Literary Rogues is a wildly funny and illuminating history and analysis of the bad boys and girls of lit, from the author of Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love

Part nostalgia, part serious history of Western literary movements, Literary Rogues: A Scandalous History of Wayward Authors is a raucous celebration of oft-vilified writers and their work, brimming with interviews, research, and personality.

Andrew Shaffer is the author ofGreat Philosophers Who Failed at Loveand, under the pen name Fanny Merkin,Fifty Shames of Earl Grey. His writing has appeared in such diverse publications asMental FlossandMaxim. An Iowa native, Shaffer lives in Lexington, Kentucky, a magical land of horses and bourbon.
