About the Author

H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) was an American journalist and author. Skilled in satire, he was famous for the pungent criticism he aimed at all complacent attitudes and for his vigorous attacks on the shams and stuffiness of his day. Among his works are Ventures into Verse, Treatise on the Gods, and his autobiography Happy Days. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is amusing enough and nice and short for those with diminished attention spans. I personally don't think this is Mencken's absolute best work. Those who don't want to devote a lot of time to Mencken but want something entertaining and representative would be better served by investing in the Chrestomathy.

H L Mencken, in my opinion was the most interesting writer of the 20th century.In today's world, someone would probably have tarred and feathered the chap.. but in those, days.... the days of my own youth, the 1930s... he was a God.

Cleverly written and very different. H. L. Mencken was able to cover many literary styles and his pros, always a pleasure to read.
