Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141184493, Paperback)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.

This volume contains short stories by Saki, as he drives a knife into the upper crust of English Edwardian life. It introduces two of his most brilliant creations, the self-obsessed Clovis and the vain and supremely stylish Reginald.
