Some of MenckenOs most interesting letters were written to George Sterling, a pupil of Ambrose Bierce. The correspondence_which survives nearly intact on both sides_covers a wealth of subjects, including MenckenOs editorship of the Smart SetMoreSome of MenckenOs most interesting letters were written to George Sterling, a pupil of Ambrose Bierce. The correspondence_which survives nearly intact on both sides_covers a wealth of subjects, including MenckenOs editorship of the Smart Set (1914-23) and American Mercury (1924-26), mutual colleagues (Bierce, Theodore Dreiser, Jack London, Sinclair Lewis), and most entertainingly, each authorOs flagrant flouting of Prohibition as well as SterlingOs carnal adventures with a variety of women in California.

These letters shed a vivid light on the literary, political, social, and cultural temper of the Jazz Age.
