  • My Life as Author and Editorby H.L. Mencken

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 25.00

    H. L. Mencken stipulated that this memoir remain sealed in a vault for thirty-five years after his death. For good reason: My Life as Author and Editor is so telling and uproariously opinionated that is might have provoked a storm of libel suits. As he recounts his career as a critic, essayist, and editor of the ground-breaking magazine Smart Set... more...

  • Mencken Chrestomathyby H.L. Mencken

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 21.95

    In my title I revive the word chrestomathy in its true sense of 'a collection of choice passages from an author or authors, ' and ignore the late edition of 'especially one complied to assist in the acquirement of a language.' In the latter significance the term is often used by linguists, and some of the chrestomathies issued by them... more...

  • American Language Supplement 2by H.L. Mencken

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 50.00

    The DEFINITIVE EDITION OF The American Language was published in 1936.  Since then it has been recognized as a classic.  It is that rarest of literary accomplishments?a book that is authoritative and scientific and is at the same time very diverting reading.  But after 1936 HLM continued to gather new materials diligently.  In 1945 those which related... more...

  • Second Mencken Chrestomathyby H.L. Mencken

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2013; US$ 16.00

    Before there was any such thing as political correctness, H. L. Mencken was flouting it. He was also cheerfully deriding the precursors of family values and lambasting the guardians of public virtue.
