The Facts of Life in Popular Song

Publisher: N.Y., Whittlesey House/McGraw-Hill [1934].
'First Edition.' 148 p.; 23.5 cm. 'This book is the outgrowth of a single essay, first printed in The American Spectator. The late Ring Lardner had been hammering away at the suggestiveness of our popular song lyrics for a long time, but too often letting his honest indignation get the better of his sense of humor. Most of our smutty song texts can be more effectively spoofed than viewed with alarm. "The popular song has become a most revealing index to American life in general. It sums up the ethics, the habits, the slang, the intimate character of every generation" Stock# 37,141. Vg, a few marginal stains; top edge & spine of dj faded from the original pink.
