Harris, Frank: Elder Conklin. V1. 17 Feb 2011
Frank Harris (February 14, 1856 – August 27, 1931) was a British-born, naturalized-American author, editor, journalist and publisher, who was friendly with many well-known figures of his day. Though he attracted much attention during his life for his irascible, aggressive personality, editorship of famous periodicals, and friendship with the talented and famous, he is remembered mainly for his multiple-volume memoir My Life and Loves, which was banned in countries around the world for its sexual explicitness.
This was Harris' first book, generally well received by the critics of his day. It demonstrates his gift for story-telling, particularly in the title story: set in the Kansas that Harris had known some twenty years before, it tells of an old man, his daughter and their lodger. Each is wonderfully cussed in their own way, leading to a predictably unfortunate climax.

A MODERN IDYLL.
THE BEST MAN IN GAROTTE.
