Overview

The Unbearable Bassington by H. H. Munro, Saki

The Unbearable Bassington was the first novel written by Saki (H. H. Munro) and contains much of the elegant wit found in his short stories. Comus (The Unbearable) Bassington, is a charming young man about town. His perversity however thwarts all his mother's efforts to advance his prospects and lands him in hot water. He is like many a "black sheep" that ends up being sent off to one of the colonies to fend for himself. This novel showcases Saki's wonderful writing and that ability to be extremely comical and terribly sad at the same time.
