The two novelists dialogue.

Which one did you side with?

UPDATE: Another round of two novelists.

I have to side with the one that went into the other's house. This sort of panders to the lewd elements of my imagination. Well? The guy says, "when you were gone, my friend, I've gone to your house for my books" - books my foot.
This ain't figurative and you know it. Writers are known for their dallying around.

Goesh: Yeah, it's a definite double entendre. "For my books" means I'm getting material for the kind of novels I write and think are better than yours: like Tolstoy and Flaubert, I write adultery novels.
