Lunedi Lunacy

At table the other evening conversation briefly turned to an early musical here inthe first years of the Charlottetown Festival:  Sunshine Town.  It was based on Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town – a book familiar to every Canadian school child of the 40s and 50s.  Certainly when I was growing up Stephen Leacock’s short stories were required reading on our school curricula.  One of my favourites was My Financial Career   – it certainly mirrored my early fear of banks.  As with all of Leacock’s stories the humour is a gentle with a wry dig at the figures of authority that intimidated so many of us.

 

On this day in 1957:  On the Road, a novel by American writer Jack Kerouac, is published.
