The Secret Sin of Septimus Brope This book made me laugh out loud, which is an absolutely wonderful thing I can t remember that last time I ve enjoyed comedy of the written word like this The stories are all smart, succinct and surprising Saki has a wonderful wit and a nice imagination I think What a joy to encounter Saki again One of his stories, The lumber room , was set for my matric English syllabus and I cherish it than three decades later Many others have become favourites, including Tobermory , one of the longest tales in this Penguin selection The chaos caused by a talking cat is a priceless portrayal of the Edwardian high society in turmoil Several other stories feature the delightful schemer Clovis A short play is also included It is fascinating to read this collection directly after the selection of Runyon stories they are so similar in their precise portrayal of a very specific culture of time and place and language, although the two worlds differ significantly Saki s ironically poised tales remind the reader of bite sized and matured Jane Austen A constant joy.Saki se ironiese uitbeelding van die Edwardiaanse samelewing in Engeland is voortdurend n vreugde Hy skep karakters wat die omstandighede uitbuit vir eie gewin, soos die ha Thoroughly enjoyable, beautifully written laugh out loud at times little book of literary joy. Really enjoyed it Not really sure why It s so simple, but it really takes you there. Absolutely wonderful stuff, somewhat redolent of PG Wodehouse and I really want to read stories. A small collection of Saki s most acerbic, satirical and funny short stories I was disappointed at first, but some of the later stories were my thing I think I ll stick to Wodehouse in future though.The stories I enjoyed are The Baker s DozenTobermoryThe Secret The Secret Sin Of Septimus Brope Is A Short Story By Saki Hector Hugh Munro 18 December 1870 13 November 1916 , Better Known By The Pen Name Saki, And Also Frequently As H H Munro, Was A British Writer Whose Witty, Mischievous And Sometimes Macabre Stories Satirized Edwardian Society And Culture He Is Considered A Master Of The Short Story And Often Compared To O Henry And Dorothy Parker Influenced By Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll, And Kipling, He Himself Influenced A A Milne, Noel Coward, And P G Wodehouse Beside His Short Stories Which Were First Published In Newspapers, As Was Customary At The Time, And Then Collected Into Several Volumes , He Wrote A Full Length Play, The Watched Pot, In Collaboration With Charles Maude Two One Act Plays A Historical Study, The Rise Of The Russian Empire, The Only Book Published Under His Own Name A Short Novel, The Unbearable Bassington The Episodic The Westminster Alice A Parliamentary Parody Of Alice In Wonderland , And When William Came, Subtitled A Story Of London Under The Hohenzollerns, A Fantasy About A Future German Invasion Of Britain Mary Was The Daughter Of Rear Admiral Samuel Mercer And Her Nephew, Cecil William Mercer, Became A Famous Writer As Dornford Yates Charles Munro Was An Inspector General For The Burmese Police In 1872, On A Home Visit To England, Mary Was Charged By A Cow And The Shock Caused Her To Miscarry She Never Recovered And Soon Died Charles Munro Sent His Children, Including Two Year Old Hector, To England, Where They Were Brought Up By Their Grandmother And Aunts In A Strict Puritanical Household Munro Was Educated At Pencarwick School In Exmouth, Devon And At Bedford School On A Few Occasions, When He Retired, Charles Travelled With Hector And His Sister To Fashionable European Spas And Tourist Resorts In 1893, Hector Followed His Father Into The Indian Imperial Police, Where He Was Posted To Burma Like George Orwell A Generation Later Two Years Later, Having Contracted Malaria, He Resigned And Returned To England At The Start Of World War I, Although 43 And Officially Over Age, Munro Refused A Commission And Joined 2nd King Edward S Horse As An Ordinary Trooper, Later Transferring To 22nd Battalion, The Royal Fusiliers, Where He Rose To The Rank Of Lance Sergeant More Than Once He Returned To The Battlefield When Officially Still Too Sick Or Injured In November 1916, When Sheltering In A Shell Crater Near Beaumont Hamel, France, During The Battle Of The Ancre He Was Killed By A German Sniper His Last Words, According To Several Sources, Were Put That Bloody Cigarette Out After His Death, His Sister Ethel Destroyed Most Of His Papers And Wrote Her Own Account Of Their Childhood.
