Audio Interview with Charles Fecher
about H. L. Mencken

H. L. Mencken

Charles Fecher, author of Mencken: A Study of His Thought, The Diary of H. L. Mencken, and The Philosophy of Jacques Maritain, talks about various aspects of H. L. Mencken's life. He discusses some of Mencken's questionable publications that may not have been intended for publication, and the fact that Mencken's will could contain the answers to the mystery. Also, Charles Fecher and Don Swaim talk about Mencken's use of racist words in his writings.
