The buttoned-up world of the British upper classes is exploded by the brilliance, wit and audacity of Saki's bomb-like stories. In "The Open Window" an imaginative teenager gives a visitor the fright of his life. In "The Unrest Cure" the ordered home of a respectable country gent is rocked to its core. And "Laura" expresses the hope of revenge via reincarnation. For punchlines, twists, satire and pure mirth, Saki's stories are second-to-none.
