by Ring Lardner () Approximate Word Count: I got another barber that comes over from Carterville and helps me out Saturdays, but the rest of the time I can get along all right alone.   To me, a book of Ring Lardner stories all comes down to a man hanging over the Golden Gate Bridge and when grabbed by the police, telling them, shucks. The other night, Ring Lardner .

More Than any other writer in the twentieth century, Ring Lardner was identified with baseball. His years as a newspaper reporter in Chicago covering the Cubs and White Sox gave him inside knowledge of the sport and how it reflected the American experience/5(3).   Ring Lardner and the Other by Douglas Robinson, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.5/5(1).

Well you know I am a big fan of Ring Lardner from ever since I bought that collection of his stories Haircut and Other Stories from the street seller on 72nd and Broadway when I was a kid just.   While Frazier didn't really have to know how Lardner did it, selecting representative pieces for the Library of America's "Ring Lardner: Stories & Other Writings" was a challenge.

In other words, it is not me, Ring Lardner, narrating this tale it is little Susie Nobody or Jake the small town barber.

Lardner writes with a flare and a wit but, no doubt about it, he is a very critical individual. The majority of these stories are extremely sarcastic but written tongue in by: 2.

The title Haircut and Other Stories gets it right: this book has the excellent short story "Haircut" and then some other shit. "Haircut" nicely balances text and subtext, argot and tone to be one of the better early 20th century short story I've read. The other stories often stay one-dimensional and despite their brief lengths feel a bit too long.4/5.

Ring Lardner $ - $ Ring Lardner’s influence on American letters is arguably greater than that of any other American writer in the early part of the twentieth century.

Lauded by critics and the public for his groundbreaking short stories, Lardner was also the country’s best-known journalist in the s and early s, when his voice was all but inescapable. Interviews Aug Ian Frazier on why Ring Lardner is “a major figure in twentieth-century letters” Ring Lardner: Stories & Other Writings.

Writer and humorist Ian Frazier, a frequent contributor to The New Yorker and the author of many books (including the best-selling Travels in Siberia) spoke with us recently about the newly published Ring Lardner: Stories & Other Writings. The Ring Lardner book is a critical study of a minor American author who was popular in the twenties; the Other book is a theoretical exploration of what Fredric Jameson has called the "political unconscious," of our ideological entrapment in and various escape routes out of the double bind, the prison bars forged by society within our bodies.

It is Lardner’s ear for and virtuosity with the American language as it was written and spoken by a great body of uneducated people of a vanished era, and the use to which he put that, that now at last come through to me fully as I read the Library of America’s just-published Ring Lardner: Stories & Other Writings.
