Saki is the pen name of Hector Hugh Munro, an English writer I first heard of when my daughter was assigned one of his stories for her high school English class. She insisted that I'd like this one. I do like him; his stories tend to punish the pompous and favor children and other underdogs. Highly ironic and often humorous, they are very short and generally end with a punchline of sorts.
I haven't (yet) read this entire collection. It contains around 100 stories, and I'm not inclined to read them all at once. They're kind of like little snacks--it's nice to read one or two when the mood strikes. I'm keeping it in the kitchen.
