This volume contains Stephen Leacock's collection of short stories, "Winsome Winnie And Other New Nonsense Novels" (first published in 1920). These wonderful and comical tales will appeal to fans of Leacock's work, and would make for worthy additions to any literary collection. The stories of this compendium include: "Thrown on the World", "A Re-encounter", "Friends in Distress", "A Gambling Party in St. James's Close", "The Abduction", "The Unknown", "The Proposal", "Wedded at Last", "John and I; Or, How I Nearly Lost my Husband", and more. Stephen P. H. Butler Leacock (1869 - 1944) was a Canadian writer, humourist, and teacher. He was amongst the most widely read English-speaking authors in the world during the early-twentieth century, and is best remembered for his humourous novels. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
