The Collected Short Stories of Saki Paperback
Part of the Wordsworth Classics series
`All decent people live beyond their incomes nowadays, and those who aren't respectable live beyond other people's'. Saki (H.H. Munro) stands alongside Anton Chekhov and O Henry as a master of the short story.
His extraordinary stories are a mixture of humorous satire, irony and the macabre, in which the stupidities and hypocrisy of conventional society are viciously pilloried.
This collection includes Sredni Vastor and The Unrest Cure. `We all know that Prime Ministers are wedded to the truth, but like other married couples they sometimes live apart'
