Sportswriter, storyteller, humorist-Ring Lardner was an American original, and in this affectionate, entertaining, and authoritative biography, Pulitzer Prize winning critic Jonathan Yardley gives us a new look at Lardner's all too short life and career.

Jonathan Yardley's compelling biography "Ring" is a fascinating account of how Lardner rose from his small-town roots to become one of the most famous storytellers in American literature, but one whose life was haunted by his bouts with alcoholism and depression.
