I'm looking for examples of books where this is the main, or one of the main, themes. Any pointers much appreciated.

Hmm, it seems like there must be a lot of books on this theme, but I'm having a hard time thinking of many specifically. I guess it's a likely subtext in any book about two friends in which one friend is more successful than the other. Martin Amis's The Information is one.
