Summary
"Mencken was prolific; much of his best work lies buried in the newspapers and magazines in which it originally appeared. Mencken's America is a sampling of uncollected work, arranged to present the wide-ranging treatise on American culture that Mencken himself never wrote." "The core of the book is a series of six articles on "The American" published in the Smart Set in 1913 and 1914. Never before reprinted, they embody the essence of Mencken's views on the deficiencies of his countrymen."--BOOK JACKET
