Author Ted Reinstein: Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds, October 23, 2016

From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries, New England's feuds have peppered the region's life for centuries. They've been raw and rowdy, sometimes high minded and humorous, and in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary.

Author Ted Reinstein is best known in New England as a journalist and reporter for Chronicle, Boston's celebrated (and America's longest-running, locally-produced) TV news-magazine.
