This chapter focuses on Mencken's complex relationships with women between 1927-1928. He was torn with conflicting emotions over actress Aileen Pringle; opera singer Gretchen Hood; former girlfriend, the now-divorced Marion Bloom; and Southern writer Sara Haardt. Although Mencken was drawn to all these women, he felt a kinship with Sara Haardt, who seemed to share his quiet values more than any other.
