    The controversial writer was popular

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    The controversial writer was popular among the readers but hated by his colleagues and literary critics because he often talked about them disparagingly.

    Re: The controversial writer was popular

    I would use "the critics" instead of "literary critics" in that sentence.
