More About Mainly on the Air by Beerbohm, Max
 
 
 
Overview

Collected radio talks by the celebrated English essayist and humorist Sir Max Beerbohm. Beerbohm returned to England from his home in Rapallo in Italy in about 1935 when his wife, Florence Kahn was cast in a revival of Peer Gynt on the London stage. At this time he resumed writing essays when the BBC invited him to give regular radio broadcasts. He talked about cars and carriages and music halls, among other topics. He and his wife remained in Britain during World War II during which period Beerbohm continued to broadcast, giving his last 'on air' talk in 1945. The success of these broadcasts made Beerbohm a well-known emeritus of British humour. Six of these radio talks were collected together with six other essays and published as Mainly on the Air in 1946. Sir Henry Maximilian "Max" Beerbohm was an English essayist, parodist and caricaturist. His best known works today include A Christmas Garland, a parody of literary styles, Seven Men, which includes "Enoch Soames," the tale of a poet who makes a deal with the Devil to find out how posterity will remember him, and Zuleika Dobson, his only novel.
