Disturber of the Peace: Life of H.L. Mencken (Commonwealth Classics in Biography) Paperback – Import Jan 1988
Product Description From AudioFile Noted author and biographer William Manchester takes on the task of remembering an equally famous contemporary H. L. Mencken. Mencken's newspaper columns and books penetrated the hypocrisies of public life and others described him as "irresponsible readable and rude." Narrator Anthony Heald takes on a saucy attitude for the descriptions of Mencken's milieu. Using a nasal voice and haughty manner he seems to thumb his nose at the world just as H.L. did. Heald adopts a unique voice and manner of speech for everyone in Mencken's life sometimes projecting his delivery as though he were on stage. His interpretation must follow the author's wanderings and detours through every kind of subject and personality in a crazy salad of writing that sometimes defies any genre.
