The Complete Short Stories

Read by Rupert Degas


H.H. Munro (Saki) is one of the undisputed masters of the short story. In this complete compendium, the full gamut of his subjects and themes is experienced. His stories are imbued with humorous satire, biting irony and often the macabre, all of which have one target: the stupidities and hypocrisies of Edwardian upper-class society.

English-Australian narrator Rupert Degas has a grand time giving voice to Saki’s (Hector Hugh Munro, 1870–1916) many tales of blustering, tyrannical aunts; mischievous children; and that most important of all English inventions – the twit. Saki was a master of light journalism and short fiction and was known for his barbed descriptions of upper-crust English life and his ingenious plot twists. Degas is especially deft at accentuating the darker and more cynical tones in some of Saki’s best-known works, such as ‘The Jesting of Arlington Stringham’, ‘The Unrest-Cure’, ‘Tobermory’, and the witty examination of reincarnation in ‘Laura’. Satirical, sly and sophisticated – listen closely, and you’ll hear why everyone from P.G. Wodehouse to Monty Python owes a huge debt of gratitude to this Edwardian comic genius.
