You Know Me Al | The Real Dope | The Young Immigrunts | The Big Town | collected and uncollected stories | sketches, journalism, plays, lyrics, and letters More
Edited by Ian Frazier

“The generous, 961-page anthology edited by Ian Frazier strikes a balance between signature masterworks and unearthed treasures in attempting to capture the sweep of Lardner’s prolific output during his short life. . . . As with Twain, the Michigan-born Lardner’s most memorable stories were grounded in his Midwestern sensibility and were devastating, character-driven exposes of the hypocrisies and blithe cruelties of life not only in the big cities but in small-town America as well.”—Chicago Tribune
