Stephen Butler Leacock (1869 -1944) was a Canadian writer and economist. Leacock, always of obvious intelligence, was sent to the elite private school of Upper Canada College in Toronto, where he was top of the class and so popular he was chosen as head boy. Early in his career Leacock turned to fiction, humour, and short reports to supplement and ultimately exceed his regular income. His stories, first published in magazines in Canada and the United States and later in novel form became extremely popular around the world. It was said in 1911 that more people had heard of Stephen Leacock than had heard of Canada. Although he wrote learned articles and books related to his field of study, his political theory is now all but forgotten. Leacock was awarded the Royal Society of Canada's Lorne Pierce Medal in 1937, nominally for his academic work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old romantic and tragic novels Dec 3 2003
Format:Hardcover
This book should be considered a collection of short novellas. Like reading of cads and bounders,shady lawyers and tragic damsels in distress.. this book has them all. I think that the comic element in these stories is this books saving grace. Reminding one of silent movie hero's and heroines.. dramatic to say the least,fun fast read. If you love an old style novel if Dickens appeals to you ... you will love this book

5.0 out of 5 stars A master of satire March 28 2013
By P R Trent (Woof) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stephen Leacock is not as well-known as he ought to be. This collection of short stories satirizes just about every popular fiction genre: the Victorian "poor honest girl" with a missing fortune, Sherlock Holmes, romance fiction, and others. No humor writer is funny all the time, but Leacock comes close. Also, understand these stories were written in 1920 and earlier, and may appear dated to some readers, but I think this adds to their charm. This, and his other short story collections, is well worth a read.
