In this clever tale from W. Jacobs, a grocer is nagged to within an inch of his life by his pretentious wife and her family, who want the man to display finer manners. But when he takes their advice to the extreme, they soon find themselves longing for his former, more informal approach to life. Although he began his career as a serious literary novelist, writer Thomas Anstey Guthrie first gained a wide readership when he began publishing humorous tales and essays, many of which also happened to have a supernatural element.
The collection The Black Poodle and Other Tales brings together some of Anstey's most side-splitting forays into the humor genre. Moonbeams From the Larger Lunacy. Stephen Leacock. Dividing his time between academic pursuits and humor writing, Canadian author and scholar Stephen Leacock had a vivid, kinetic imagination. His playful mental prowess is on full display in the collection Moonbeams From the Larger Lunacy, which veers between a wide array of topics, ranging from suffrage to literary satires of overwrought purple prose.
Four Pigeons: Captains All, Book 7. In this charming story from W.
Jacobs, a pub denizen spins a yarn about a shooting party that went horribly awry. Though best remembered for his macabre tale "The Monkey's Paw," Jacobs' true literary strength is in his ability to concoct memorable salt-of-the-earth characters.
