About the Author:

Jonathan Yardley is the book critic and a columnist for the Washington Post. His columns and reviews are distributed to newspapers throughout the country. He lives in Washington, D.C.

Review:

"To this awesomely detailed biography of Ring Lardner, Yardley brings a first-rate literary critic's perceptions; an experienced reporter's skills; a deep interest in that earlier, innocent era of baseball that spawned Lardner as one of the greatest ever to write about that sport; and an obvious and abiding affection for his complex, often puzzling subject." (Chicago Daily News)

"A satisfying portrait of the sad, self-mocking man who wrote some of the funniest prose in the American language." (The New York Times)

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. (The San Francisco Chronicle)
