Introducing Stephen Leacock, Canada's most famous humourist, and the whole Leacock clan--as seen through the eyes of a perceptive and observant young girl.
Elizabeth Kimball remembers not just her Uncle Stephen, but the whole idyllic summer world of cottages, beaches, children, aunts and uncles, famous visitors, great adventures and the occasional awful disaster as well. In this delightful book, she relives her wonderful childhood and offers her reflections on her famous uncle. Like most of the Leacocks, she was not inclined to take his fame too seriously. "If only they knew how much he drank, they wouldn't make such a fuss of him," said one of his sisters after a particularly trying session with some literary fans.
Written with warmly and with charm, My Uncle, Stephen Leacock recaptures a carefree, bygone way of life.

"A good book for the mood it evokes of another time..."

- Edmonton Journal

"Draws you into the Leacock family like a magnet."

- Kitchener-Waterloo Record

"A warm, irreverent portrait."

- Chatelaine
