Literary Lapses (Dodo Press) by Stephen Leacock

Book Description

Stephen Butler Leacock (1869 -1944) was a Canadian writer and economist. Leacock, always of obvious intelligence, was sent to the elite private school of Upper Canada College in Toronto, where he was top of the class and so popular he was chosen as head boy. Early in his career Leacock turned to fiction, humour, and short reports to supplement and ultimately exceed his regular income. His stories, first published in magazines in Canada and the United States and later in novel form became extremely popular around the world. It was said in 1911 that more people had heard of Stephen Leacock than had heard of Canada. Although he wrote learned articles and books related to his field of study, his political theory is now all but forgotten. Leacock was awarded the Royal Society of Canada's Lorne Pierce Medal in 1937, nominally for his academic work.

Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town by Stephen Leacock Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, Hardback (October 2013)

Who really murdered Mary Pinchot Meyer in the fall of 1964? Why was there a mad rush by CIA counter intelligence chief James Angleton to immediately locate and confiscate her diary? And was it mere coincidence that Mary Meyer was killed less than three weeks after the release of the Warren Commission Report? This title deals with these questions.
