9781589633087: My Lady Nicotine

J.M. Barrie is the Scottish writer who captures children's hearts worldwide with the memorable Peter Pan.

This book, entitled My Lady Nicotine is humorous as well, though in a very different ways. A collection of hilarious tales concerning one man's attempts to giving up smoking. It includes tales of these attempts, and his general meditations and observations on smoking. They teach through humor, satire and parody, shunning the moralizing anti-smoking polemic of our day, which is not nearly as effective as humor. "I am much better without tobacco, and already have difficulty in sympathizing with the man I used to be," Barrie says on the opening pages. The tale of his struggle follows.

About the Author:

J.M. Barrie was born in 1860, the ninth of ten children of hard-working parents in Scotland's jute-weaving industry. Fascinated by stories of her own life told him by his mother, he was determined to write, finding work on the Nottingham Journal after graduating from Edinburgh University. In 1885, he moved to London as a freelance writer and successfully sold the Auld Licht Idylls, a volume based on his mother's tales. By the time Peter Pan opened on the London stage in 1904, Barrie had written more than thirty novels and plays, many autobiographical and several of them major hits such as The Little Minister, Quality Street and The Admirable Crichton. Knighted and awarded the Order of Merit he continued writing into old age. He died in 1937.

Review:

"Written generally in serio-comic vein, brightened with flashes of droll irony and quaint suggestion." -- London Times
