Summary
In this collection of hilarious literary satires, Canadian humorist Stephen Leacock jaunts from genre to genre, gleefully skewering mysteries, ghost stories, detective novels, and virtually every other type of fiction you can think of. It's a light but surprisingly insightful look at the excesses of twentieth-century prose that will amuse and delight readers
