A Second Mencken Chrestomathy by H.L. Mencken

This Wonderful Sequel to the best-selling A Mencken Chrestomathy of nearly half a century ago is full of the iconoclastic common sense that marked H. L. Menckens astonishing career as the premier American social critic of the twentieth century. 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.
