Ladies and Gentlemen is a volume of essays, in the most elegant Cabell manner, in the form of imaginary letters to real, legendary, and imaginary persons, discussing a wide range of literary and philosophical matters. It is not only essential to the appreciation of the range of this important author's imagination and concerns, but a very entertaining collection of midnight conversations with, among others, King Tut, Solomon, Julius Caesar, Ananias, Sir Galahad, Hamlet, Tamerlane, Falstaff, Dr. Faustus, George Washintgon, Edgar Allan Poe, John Wilkes Booth, and Cabell's own Jurgen of Poictesme.

James Branch Cabell (1879-1958) wrote many of the Twentieth Century's finest fantasies, including the controversial Jurgen, which was famously banned by the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice. It was only after the furor died down that readers and critics were fully able to appreciate this was no mere sensationalist, but a literary artist of very high caliber. Cabell was above all else, an elegant stylist, whose gently caustic, beautifully fantasic comedies struck a chord in the Jazz Age and still resonate today. He was an important influence on subsequent writers as diverse as Fritz Leiber and Neil Gaiman.

Book Excerpt: present, then, people who, as people normally do, accepted their times and made the best of them, since the most estimable needs conform a little to the custom of his day, whether it be Caractacus painting himself sky-blue or Galileo on his knees at Santa Maria. And accordingly, many of my comedians will lie when it seems advisable, and will not haggle over a misdemeanor when there is anything to be gained by it; at times their virtues will get them what they want, and at times their vices, and at other times they will be neither punished nor rewarded; in fine, Madam, they will be just human beings stumbling through illogical lives with precisely that lack of common-sense which so pre-eminently distinguishes all our neighbors from ourselves.For the life that moved in old Manuel of Poictesme finds hereinafter in his descendants, in these later Allonbys and Bulmers and Heleighs and Floyers, a new milieu to conform and curb that life in externes rather than in essentials.
