"There is no greater compliment to be paid the right kind of friend then to hand him Saki, without comment," writes Christopher Morley in his Introduction to this volume; Hector Hugh Munro - Saki, perhaps the best-loved amount English humorists and short-story writers, has endeared himself to all kinds of new friends since his death in action in World Was I in 1916.
In his introduction, Morley characterizes Saki's style and wit as that of the "finest and driest of champaynes" blended with "the most elect of the still vintage wines." It is this blend that has carried him through time to the present. The best of Saki's short stories, collected together in this volume, coupled with the biography by his sister and the introduction by Christopher Morley, well deserves to be uncorked and savored until the last drop
