Short Circuits by Stephen Leacock (New Canadian Library N57)

Series One

From the Back Cover:

Short Circuits is a superb collection of brief pieces by Stephen Leacock at his best. In it this irreverent observer of the human comedy touches on many subjects, including sports, the movie industry, radio, education, international relations, and current literature. Leacock illuminates the enduring follies of human nature through his lively wit, sharp satire, and spontaneous sense of incongruity, but his moods are often laced with hints of nostalgia and always convey his profound understanding and wisdom.

Here is a delightful starting point for all who are not acquainted with Canada’s greatest humourist, as well as a source of deep pleasure to all Leacock readers.
