Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock

This vintage book contains Stephen Leacock's 1912 sequence of stories, "Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town". Commonly hailed as being amongst the most important examples of humorous Canadian literature, "Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town" is set in Mariposa, a microcosm of Canadian society populated by hilarious small-town stereotypes. Contents include: "The Hostelry of Mr. Smith", "The Speculations of Jefferson Thorpe", "The Marine Excursions of the Knights of Pythias", "The Ministrations of the Rev. Mr. Drone", "The Whirlwind Campaign in Mariposa", "The Beacon on the Hill", "The Extraordinary Entanglement of Mr. Pupkin", "The Fore-ordained Attachment of Zena Pepperleigh and Peter Pupkin", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction. This book was first published in 1912.
