Item Details

An NYRB Classics Original The whimsical, macabre tales of British writer H. H. Munro--better known as Saki--skewer the banality and hypocrisy of polite English society between the end of the Victorian era and the beginning of World War I. Saki's heroes are enfants terribles who marshal their considerable wit and imagination against the cruelty and fatuousness of a decorous and doomed world. Here, Saki's brilliantly polished dark gems are paired with illustrations by the peerless Edward Gorey, available for the first time in an English-language edition. The fragile elegance and creeping menace of Gorey's pen-and-ink drawings perfectly complements Saki's population of delicate ladies, mischief-making charges, spectral guests, sardonic house pets, flustered authority figures, and delightfully preposterous imposters.
