5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Saki is perhaps the most graceful spokesman for England's 'Golden Afternoon' - the slow and peaceful years before the First World War.

Although, like so many of his generation, he died tragically young, in action on the Western Front, his reputation as a writer continued to grow long after his death.

The stories of this title are humorous, satiric, supernatural, and macabre, highly individual, full of eccentric wit and unconventional situations.

With his great gift as a social satirist of his contemporary upper-class Edwardian world, Saki is one of the few undisputed English masters of the short story.

I love Saki, and this book included some very funny tales that hadn't made it into the 'best of' collections that I have read in the past, as well as a few duds.
