This collection of the complete works of Hector Hugh Munro—better known by his penname, Saki—serves as the perfect display for the author’s uncommon wit and perspicacity. Stories such as “Beasts and Super-Beasts,” “The Chronicles of Clovis,” “The Square Egg,” and the “Reginald” stories skewer the rigid morality and hypocrisies of Edwardian society, often juxtaposing them with an uncomplicated and often cruel nature. The tales included in this compendium will engross and entertain anyone interested in satire and the art of the short story at its very best.
