From the Back Cover:
In one story, a young man 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.
Bringing together these and other comic masterpieces by Stephen Leacock, MY FINANCIAL CAREER AND OTHER FOLLIES exhibits the many varieties of his remarkable humour. Here is the quintessence of Leacock – the finest examples of his inimitable jesting, his timeless wit, and his contagious laughter. Completing these classic comedies are two of Leacock’s own essays on humour.
MY FINANCIAL CAREER AND OTHER FOLLIES is an original New Canadian Library collection.
