BERT SUGAR: 1937-2012


“The scale fell from my eyes and I suddenly became aware of writers like H.L. Mencken who saw things as they were, not as they ought to be. Then it was on to Ambrose Bierce, Oscar Wilde, Ring Lardner, Damon Runyon and others who, almost as if smelling flowers began to look around for the coffin, trafficked in the same unpleasant way of telling the truth, their writings crackling with wit and barbed-wire irony–called “cynicism” by those who didn’t understand the truth when they saw it.”
