    About Arcadian Adventures with the Idle Rich. Of the many books by Canada’s most celebrated humorist, none has received more acclaim than his brilliant, caustic treatment of the glittering rich who gather at the Mausoleum Club on Plutoria Avenue.

    The follow-up to his enormously successful Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, Arcadian Adventures with the Idle Rich is Canadian humorist Stephen Leacock's take on life among the American upper-class. With inter-locking stories, Leacock creates a vivid world where money is no object and larger-than-life characters vie to be the centre of attention at the Mausoleum Club . Today, Leacock's pointed satire of the privileged class, and their social abuses and pretences, retains every ounce of its freshness and bite. An undisputed comic masterpiece, Arcadian Adventures with the Idle Rich reveals a depth of compassionate criticism rare in Leacock's writings. From the Paperback edition.
