A collection of Barry Pain's 1890s magazine work, including short parodies of Kipling, Ruskin, Blackmore, Pater, and Tolstoy; "reader responses" to self-help books; original humorous fiction and poetry; and portraits of people and things likely to be found in and around a contemporary upper-class English home (children, curates, piano tuners, dukes). The central section of the book is neither a plaything nor a parody, but a series of word portraits of London neighborhoods.
