Cyril Connelly's Enemies of Promise, first published in 1948, is an interesting glimpse of a learned literary comment on English and some American fiction of the early half of the 20th century. For a reader looking for insight into today's fiction, it is dated and much of it is irrelevant. Cyril Connolly was an influential, although highly opinionated, critic of his time. The book, I believe, would best serve the interests of a literary historian.
