KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY
THE Brontës aren’t the only family members to have experienced a literary rivalry.
The Brothers Grimm – German siblings Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. They made their name with their pioneering collections of folk tales, which they followed up with fairytales of their own.
Kingsley Amis and Martin Amis – arguably literature’s most famous father-and-son team. Amis jnr moved out of the lengthy shadow cast by his father, who is bestremembered for his academic farce to become one of the pre-eminent figures in British writing in the late 20th century.
