A Second Mencken Chrestomathy
Gathered by Mencken himself before he died in 1956, this second Chrestomathy -- a collection of selected literary passages, with the accent on the tom -- contains writings about a variety of subjects -- politics, war, music, literature, men and women, lawyers, brethren of the cloth. Some of his essays have beguiling titles - "Notes for an Honest Autobiography", "The Commonwealth of Morons", "Le Vice Anglais", "Acres of Babble", "Hooch for the Artist". All of them are a pleasure to read, and we are reminded that what Mencken wrote in the early years of this century remains applicable to a very different America.
