Harris, F. (n.d.). The Bomb. Retrieved from

Excerpt: An Introduction by John Dos Passos [1896?1970] [1963] Frank Harris was an objectionable little man. He was sallow as a gypsy. He had bat ears, dark hair with a crinkle in it that grew low on the forehead, and a truculent mustache. People remarked on the richness of his bass voice. His charm was great, particularly for the opposite sex. He had the gift of gab to a sublime degree and a streak of deep scoundrelism that was the ruin of him. A natural storyteller, tall tales so permeated his private life that his biographers were hard put to it to disentangle any facts at all from the web of fiction he spun about himself. Particularly in the twenties, when he was editing Pearson?s Magazine in New York, there used to be considerable journalistic searching for ?the real Frank Harris.? One wonders now if such a creature ever existed. He wrote some good short stories. He might have developed into a first?rate novelist if he hadn't been such a damn liar.
