Product Description

From the Inside Flap

This original NCL collection brings together Leacock's comic masterpieces, the many varieties of his remarkable humour. In one story a young man is seized by fear as he attempts to open his first bank account. In another, Lord Ronald, the beloved of Gertrude the Governess, "flung himself upon his horse and rode madly off in all directions." In a third, the "Mariposa Belle sinks in the shallow waters of Lake Wissanotti.
Completing these timeless comedies are two of Leacock's own essays on humour.

Format: Kindle Edition
Stephen has a way of putting into words the incongruities of life. His stories are exaggerations of life situations such that, as we are reading them, we nod and think to ourselves "yes, I've seen that, or felt that".

HASH(0xa1cbb2f4) out of 5 stars Witty, insightful and talented, try not to laugh too hard Dec 27 2007
By Mark S. Sheffer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Just one story will make you search for more. I borrowed a friend's book to occupy some time while on a trip to Canada, and was searching the Internet looking for more as soon as I got home. His self deprecation in several stories lets you enjoy his witty remarks targeting others as well. He finds humor everywhere and uses language,pace and insight to make you chuckle until you become a public disturbance.

True Canadian Self-Deprecating humour. Situations that we could picture ourselves in. Common people set in common situations. Real-Life humour. Stephen talks in the language of the common person.
