Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

H.H. Munros razor-toothed wit, discerning eye, and taste for the absurd are delightfully evident in this collection of little-known tales. In Sakis world, a despotic dog becomes his owners master, a rural community is hoodwinked into believing in the predictive powers of a pair of friends, and Eve stubbornly refuses to touch the Forbidden Fruit. Although unquestionably of its time, each story ridicules the follies of society—follies still all too clearly familiar today. Best known to the world as Saki, Scottish writer Hector Hugo Munro won fame by skewering the British upper class in his chronicles of Clovis and Reginald.

Synopsis:

A unique collection of his first ever story and an unfinished work alongside six other stories.
