A book for the devil's bedside table!

by LexingtonReader on Dec 31, 2009

Mencken's wit goes beyond ascerbic and falls squarely under the heading of caustic. This is a great book for fans of Mencken and for those just discovering the man who, along with Twain, defined American creative non-fiction. I can't recommend this book highly enough, but bring your sense of humor and some antacid, as Mencken spares nothing and no one. No mercy! No quarter! Be sure to pick up the second chrestomathy, a most suitable companion to this jewel.
