    Winsome Winnie and other New Nonsense Novels

    by Stephen Leacock

    Book Description

    A hilarious send-up of literary genres that bears comparison with the work of Ian Frazier and Bruce McCall, Stephen Leacock's Nonsense Novels stands out as a highpoint of humor writing - a parody of all the silliest conventions of the adventure story, the ghost story, the detective story, the historical romance, the nautical reversal, the Caledonian feud, and much else - in which the close cultivation of cliché yields a bumper crop of absurdity. Leacock discovers the ridiculous at every new twist of the tale, and readers are sure to respond to this lunatic display with howls of delight. This special gift edition features original cover art by Bruce McCall.
