Description

The follow-up to his enormously successful Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, Arcadian Adventures with the Idle Rich is Canadian humorist Stephen Leacock’s take on life among the American upper-class. With inter-locking stories, Leacock creates a vivid world where money is no object and larger-than-life characters vie to be the centre of attention at the Mausoleum Club on Plutoria Avenue.

Stephen Leacock

Award-winning Canadian humorist and writer Stephen Leacock (1869-1944) was the author of more than 50 literary works, and between 1915 and 1925 was the most popular humorist in the English-speaking world. Leacock’s fictional works include classics like Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, Arcadian Adventures with the Idle Rich, and Literary Lapses. In addition to his humor writings, Leacock was an accomplished political theorist, publishing such works as Elements of Political Science and My Discovery of the West: A Discussion of East and West in Canada, for which he won the Governor General's Award for writing in 1937.
