(From the publisher):
Set in the fictional landscape of Mariposa on the shores of Lake Wissanotti in Missinaba County, Leacock's Sunshine Sketches of A Little Town is an affectionate satire of small town life. This series of humorous connected sketches about graft, high finance, religion, love and romance is, on one level, an intimate, comic portrait of town life and local politics. On another level, the narrative is a powerful commentary on the workings of community values and on Canada's place within the British Empire.
