Best literary feuds of the 00s

Oh. Oprah listed not once but twice. This is gonna be good.

Arguably, it is publishing's ultimate — albeit unintentional — marketing device. Nothing sells books (or at least gets them attention) quite like a literary feud. With the New Year fast approaching, I thought it might be fun to take stock of some of the squabbles, law suits, accusations and bitter backbiting that launched the book world's 21st century. Herewith, in a special edition of my weekly column, are my picks for the top-ten literary feuds of the last decade, aka "the aughts."
