This celebrated collection of sketches sparkles with Stephen Leacock?s humour and shines with the warmth of his wit.
The comical E.P., star of the title essay, ?My Remarkable Uncle,? is a classic Leacock character. He is president of a railway with a letterhead but no rails, and he heads a bank that boasts credit but no cash whatsoever ? all of which trouble E.P. not in the least.
My Remarkable Uncle, a wonderful smorgasbord of mirth served up by a master of comedy, includes several essays, a short story, a political parable, and personal reflections on a dizzying array of subjects.
Here, in rich abundance, are the inspired nonsense and the unerring eye for human folly that have made Stephen Leacock Canada?s most celebrated humorist.
