The Holiday Round A. A. Milne (1882 - 1956)

Read by Kirsten Wever

Alan Alexander Milne, popularly known as A. A. Milne, is best known perhaps to most people only known for his children’s book, Winnie the Pooh. Yet he was an incredibly prolific author. He published dozens of successful plays, myriad humorous articles written for internationally prominent journals, a wide range of social, political, and other nonfiction works, and even a murder mystery.

This collection is humorous throughout, but humorous in a particularly Milnes- que way: he consciously and quite openly rejected the bitterness of satire in favor of a peculiarly gentle, often self-deprecating humor. Included here are dozens of short essays showing, among other things, Milne’s extraordinary capacity to un- derstand - and be understood by children, and his special affinity for women, as friends and as lovers. - Summary by Kirsten Wever
