Why do so many brilliant writers turn out to be anything but brilliant in their personal conduct? From Henry James to Salman Rushdie, from Anthony Tollope to Mark Twain, author Cynthia Ozick looks at our literary idols and reveals not feet of clay, but flawed and beating hearts, and in so doing inspires us to a fresh admiration of their achievements.
