About Book

From the Publisher
Widely regarded as the Charles Dickens of his time, Haliburton’s incisive social commentary is always expressed with sparkling wit. The creation of the character of Sam Slick is widely regarded as Haliburton’s crowning achievement. Following the huge popular acclaim that greeted Thomas Chandler Haliburton’s The Clockmaker (1837), the author, bowing to the weight of expectation, brought the fast-talking hero of his narrative, Sam Slick, to England. The Attaché, Or Sam Slick in England details the adventures of the Nova Scotian wordsmith, as he delivers his brand of homespun wisdom upon this green and pleasant foreign land.

About the Author
Thomas Chandler Haliburton was born on December 17, 1796, in Windsor, Nova Scotia. After graduating from Kings College in Windsor, Haliburton opened a law practice at Annapolis Royal. Twenty years later, in 1841, Haliburton was appointed a Judge of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. In addition to his work as a lawyer, politician, and judge, Haliburton was an author, the first Canadian writer to gain international attention during the 19th century. He is best known for the book The Sayings and Doings of Sam Slick of Slickville, featuring the literary character Sam Slick, a Yankee clock peddler whose witty sayings are still quoted today. As a history writer, Haliburton wrote the books History of Nova Scotia and Rule and Misrule of the English in America. Haliburton died at his home, Gordon House, in 1865 and was buried in the Isleworth Churchyard.
