Haircut: And Other Stories

from the manufacturer

Ring Lardner first burst upon the literary scene with his greatest popular success, You Know Me Al. A sportswriter by trade, Lardner had a superb ear for regional peculiarities in speech and was loved for his sense of humor. Funny, sarcastic, sometimes bitter but always ironic, Lardner understood Americans-- their desires, their dreams, and their disappointments. Contained in Haircut and Other Stories are some of Lardners best-known pieces: Haircut, Alibi Ike, The Love Nest, Zone of Quiet, and Champion. Through these pages pass con men; an opinionated small-town barber; a nurse who chatters on and on, much to the chagrin of her charges; baseball players who have excuses for everything; and boxers who try to make it in the fight game. Published in The Saturday Evening Post, Colliers and Vanity Fair, Lardner enjoyed great success and was heralded as a singular talent by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, H. L. Mencken, and Virginia Woolf. Haircut and Other Stories is a celebration of people and of America, and is a must for anyone interested in classic American fiction.
