Summary
"H. L. Mencken was one of the most prolific letter-writers in American literature, and many of his letters were written to fellow authors. Aside from those to Theodore Dreiser, few of these letters have been published. This volume presents the joint correspondence of Mencken and George Sterling, an unjustly forgotten California poet who, under the initial tutelage of Ambrose Bierce, gained celebrity for such volumes as The Testimony of the Suns (1903) and A Wine of Wizardry (1909). The correspondence of H.L. Mencken and George Sterling - by turns amusing, outrageous, and illuminating - casts a vivid light into the literary, social, and cultural milieu of the Jazz Age, as seen through the eyes of two of its most distinctive figures."--Jacket
