Hector Hugh Munro (1870 - 1916), widely known by his pseudonym, Saki, was a British writer who wrote humourous, witty, and often macabre stories that satirize Edwardian society. Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author."
