THE FLORENCE KING READER by Florence King (St. Martin's/Griffin: $13.95, 417 pp.). In an era of political correctness and weak-kneed euphemisms, Florence King is the genuine article: an unapologetic misanthrope in the tradition of Ambrose Bierce and H. L. Mencken. This collection of fiction, reviews and commentaries showcases her barbed opinions on subjects that range from liberalism to English usage.
