Bette and Joan: The Divine Feud by Shaun Considine was released as an e-book timed to the release of FX's series Feud: Bette and Joan.

Bette and Joan: The Divine Feud is an American biography by Shaun Considine first published in 1989 and re-released in 2017 by Graymalkin Media in paperback and as an e-book.[1]

The biography focuses on the celebrated, long-term feud of Hollywood's two iconic screen legends, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.[2]

The famous feud is dramatized in the first season of the FX anthology television series Feud, titled Bette and Joan and starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange.[3][4]

The Crawford-Davis rivalry is the inspiration for the 2017 Ryan Murphy TV series Feud. Crawford is played by Jessica Lange and Davis is played by Susan Sarandon.[3] [4]
