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

12 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in English and held by 1,251 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

4 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 205 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
The man within by Graham Greene( Book )

Graham Greene's first published novel represented for the author "one sentimental gesture towards his own past, the period of ambition and hope." It tells the story of Andrews, a young man who has betrayed his fellow smugglers and fears their vengeance. "The Man Within" offers a foretaste of Greene's recurring theme of religion and the individual's struggles against cynicism and the indifferent forces of a hostile world
