`Tobermory' - the title story of this collection - is widely considered one of Saki's finest pieces, in which a short-sighted dinner-party guest introduces a talking cat to the diners, inadvertently revealing gossip and pushing fickle characters into the limelight - in the process undermining the common perceptions of grandiose and genteel high society. From some of his earliest successes, such as `Gabriel-Ernest', `The Bag' and the Clovis stories, about a young man with an impish sense of humour, to later tales such as `The Boar-Pig', which is as bizarre as it is hilarious, and `The Toys of Peace', which he was never able to see in print, this selection contains a wealth of well-known tales with vastly different themes - from reincarnation to psychological warfare - and bearing every trademark token of wit with which Saki has enthralled generations of eager readers. Review A master in his genre. --Naomi Lewis, Observer About the Author Hector Hugh Munro (1870-1916) was a British author best known by his pen name Saki. Although he wrote two novels and several political sketches - most notably The Westminster Alice, a parody authorized by Carroll's publishers - it is his large output of satirical short stories for which he is remembered, and is still considered one of the masters of the genre.
