ISBN: 9781784871918 (pbk.) :
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.
