Drawing from a collection of stories originally published in 1921 and chosen exclusively by the author himself, The Sunny Side gathers Milne’s short works. Written for the satire magazine Punch, these brief stories and essays perfectly capture Milne’s sly humor, craftily beguiling social insight and great sense of irony and perspective. From Odd Verses to War Sketches, Summer Days to Men of Letters, Milne takes his readers from the stiff British drawing room to the irreverent joy of a boy’s day at the beach and from writing plays to lying about birdwatching and all with rapier-like satire and wit.
