Ring : a biography of Ring Lardner by Jonathan Yardley( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in English and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My life as author and editor by H. L Mencken( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Full of wonderfully revealing anecdotes and biting observations, these pages are spiked with his trademark outrageous and pugnacious wit, as well as his alarming frankness. Although the memoir breaks off in the early 1920's because of a stroke he suffered in 1948, it contributes significantly to our understanding of the legendary literary era of which he was at the center. It also makes abundantly clear - if proof were ever needed - why he was our greatest social commentator, and why he has had an enduring impact on American society and letters
Misfit : the strange life of Frederick Exley by Jonathan Yardley( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exley was an alcoholic who drank in copious amounts, yet he always sobered up when he was ready to write. In his younger days he did time in a couple of mental institutions, which imposed involuntary discipline on him and helped him start to write. He was personally and financially irresponsible - he had no credit cards, no permanent address, and ambiguous relationships with everyone he knew - yet people loved him and took care of him. No matter where he was, in the dark of night he phoned friends and subjected them to interminable monologues. To many, these were a nuisance and an imposition, but later, in the light of day, they were remembered with affection and gratitude

Selected stories by Ring Lardner( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ring Lardner's humor, quirky imagination, and ear for the American vernacular endeared him to such formidable critics as Hemingway, Fitzgerald, V.S. Pritchett, and Virginia Woolf. A newspaperman who began as a sports reporter and almost accidentally stumbled into short-story writing, Lardner meticulously captured the way Americans really speak. In You Know Me Al (1916), he created one of the most enduring characters in American fiction, the semi-literate baseball player Jack Keefe

Fleeing from them, with no hope of pity or salvation, he takes refuge in the house of a young woman, also alone in the world. She persuades him to give evidence against his accomplices in court, but neigher she nor Andrews is aware that to both criminals and authority treachery is as great a crime as smuggling." -- from book cover
