With a style that combined biting sarcasm with the "language of the free lunch counter," Henry Louis Mencken shook politics and politicians for nearly half a century. Now, fifty years after Mencken''s death, the Johns Hopkins University Press announces The Buncombe Collection, newly packaged editions of nine Mencken classics: "Happy Days," "Heathen Days," "Newspaper Day"s, "Prejudices," "Treatise on the Gods," "On Politics," "Thirty-Five Years of Newspaper Work," "Minority Report," and "A Second Mencken Chrestomathy."

In the third volume of his autobiography, H. L. Mencken covers a range of subjects, from Hoggie Unglebower, the best dog trainer in Christendom, to his visit to the Holy Land, where he looked for the ruins of Gomorrah.

Author Bio
H. L. Mencken
H. L. Mencken became a reporter for the "Baltimore Herald" in 1899, and maintained a journalistic career until 1948. He was notorious for his curmudgeonly columns, his purely ornery personality, and his ability to shock the sensibility of an entire nation with a stroke of his pen. In 1930 he married Sara Powell Haardt, who died five years later.

Praise

Nation
"Mr. Mencken is certainly one of the most accomplished and most delightful writers our country has ever produced. This third installment of his own remembrance of things past is a sheer joy to read."
