Abstract:

"The outstanding literary critic of his generation, H. L. Mencken excelled as a journalist, editor, and author. He was famous for his attacks on the hypocrisy and bigotry he saw in American life. Yet, Mencken was surrounded by devoted friends and was known to be a gentle, compassionate, and loving husband. Because of her lifelong friendship with his wife, Sara Haardt, Sara Mayfield was not only part of Mencken's circle but also a trusted confidante of the literary lion himself. Great and near-great figures of the era move through Mayfield's account: Hemingway, Dreiser, George Jean Nathan, O'Neill, Faulkner, Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, Tallulah Bankhead, Sinclair Lewis, Rebecca West, Willa Cather, Ellen Glasgow, Thomas Wolfe, and presidents from Wilson to Truman. The Constant Circle captures the essence of a man who left an indelible mark on American life and letters."--Publisher description.
