<p>In 1947, a young William Manchester--the man who would later become a celebrated biographer, historian, and novelist--was working as a reporter for <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">The Baltimore Sun. </i>It was there that he met fellow journalist H.L. Mencken, the influential writer and cofounder of the magazines <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">The American Mercury </i>and <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">The Smart Set.</i> While attending the University of Missouri, Manchester tackled Mencken as the subject of his Masters thesis. When the resulting biography was published on the wider market in 1951, it made a splash--establishing Manchester's reputation as a skilled writer, biographer, and political commentator.</p><p> This book tells the story of "conservative anarchist" H.L. Mencken's life in compelling detail--a story that's energetic, controversial, and surprisingly intimate. Crafted in vivid prose, William Manchester brings Mencken's world to life.</p><p> William Manchester was the most popular and highly regarded historian and biographer of his time--and this powerful book supports that reputation.</p><p> "Manchester's book is written with verve, intellectual sophistication, and a prickly wit worthy of its eminent subject.... [<i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">The Life and Riotous Times of H.L. Mencken</i>] performs a considerable service for American intellectual history. It is, besides, a first-class piece of literate entertainment." -<i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">-The New Yorker</i></p>
