The Big Bender
By CHARLES CLAPP
HARPER BROTHERS Publishers
|This is an amazing personal history of a man whose life was transformed from " one continuous bender " to peace and happiness through contact with the Oxford Group.With a complete absence of self consciousness, the author traces his physically and morally reckless life from the time of the World War, through the mad twenties, and on to his own inevitable crash. Airplanes, Broadway plays, house parties, stocks and bonds, and alcoholic beverages-"wine, women, and song"- play their part in his story.The complete regeneration of his life through a lasting spiritual experience climaxes this unusual autobiography.|
