9781551111780: Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town

Set in the fictional landscape of Mariposa on the shores of Lake Wissanotti in Missinaba County, Leacock s Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town is an affectionate satire of small town life. This series of humourous connected sketches about graft, high finance, religion, love and romance is, on one level, an intimate, comic portrait of town life and local politics. On another level, the narrative is a powerful commentary on the workings of community values and on Canada s place within the British Empire. The Broadview edition includes a critical introduction, thorough annotation, a list of textual variants, and a range of contextual materials, including Leacock s stage adaptation of Sunshine Sketches.

From the Inside Flap:

Affectionately combining both the idyllic and ironic, Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town is Stephen Leacock?s most beloved book. Set in fictional Mariposa, an Ontario town on the shore of Lake Wissanotti, these sketches present a remarkable range of characters: some irritating, some exasperating, some foolhardy, but all endearing. Painted with the skilful brushstrokes of a great comic artist, the delightful inhabitants of Mariposa represent the people of small towns everywhere.

As fresh, funny, and insightful today as when it was first published in 1912, Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town is Stephen Leacock at his best ? colourful, imaginative, and thoroughly entertaining.

About the Author:

Carl Spadoni, the Research Collections Librarian at McMaster University Library, is the editor of Stephen Leacock s My Recollections of Chicago and The Doctrine of Laissez-Faire (1998), and the author of A Bibliography of Stephen Leacock (1998).
