My Remarkable Uncle

By Stephen Leacock
Published in 1989 by New Canadian Library
Rating: 3 / 5


This celebrated collection of sketches sparkles with Stephen Leacock’s humour and shines with the warmth of his wit.

The comical E.P., star of the title essay, “My Remarkable Uncle,” is a classic Leacock character. He is president of a railway with a letterhead but no rails, and he heads a bank that boasts credit but no cash whatsoever -– all of which trouble E.P. not in the least.
