Once A Week is a collection of short stories and slightly longer vignettes which were written for Milne’s solid British Audience, including regular readers of Punch — between1903, when he graduated from Cambridge and 1906, when he began also to edit Punch, on and through to 1909. They are humorous verses, essays and stories with what he deemed a peculiarly British flavor, focusing on the antics and adventures of a small recurring group of friends and acquaintances. The breadth of Milne’s oeuvre is illustrated by his publication, in the mean time, of 18 plays, 3 novels, collections of children’s poems, screen plays for popular British films, and a (pretty good) detective story. — among other things.
