Further Foolishness by Stephen Leacock (New Canadian Library N60) front coverSeries One

From the Back Cover:

“The trouble with Leacock is that he won’t unify, classify or ossify” says D. W. Cole in his introduction to this volume. And indeed, Stephen Leacock’s immortal capacity for arousing our laughter exists because he is not only timely but timeless. Styles in dress and custom may change, styles in people do not.

Glance at the contents of these pages: The Self Made Man; the Woman’s Magazine approach to Romance; Everyman on everything from his child (perfect) to his bridge partner (an ass); the Battle of the Sexes; the hypocrisies of politicians talking peace–all this and much more is here. And since Leacock is humanist as well as humorist, he not only entertains us uproariously, but also provokes much wry consideration of the human condition. Here is vintage Leacock–a feast for both his friends and for those who have yet to make his acquaintance.
