Reviews

  • One of the funniest writers in the English language... Saki was incapable of writing a dull sentence, but the final lines of his short stories are works of art in themselves

    Daily Telegraph
  • Read Saki, shiver, then smile. In his mixture of the exotic with the wholly English, of brazen charm with unapologetic spite, he stands alone

    Independent
  • Saki writes like an enemy. Society has bored him to the point of murder. Our laughter is only a note or two short of a scream of fear

    V. S. Pritchett
  • Saki's stories are highly relevant to any society in which convention is confused with morality, and all societies confuse convention with morality, so he'll always be relevant

    Will Self
  • Saki remains, from a distance of a hundred years, just about the sharpest, cruellest, funniest and most elegant short story writer in our language... Saki is like a perfect martini but with absinthe stirred in...heady, delicious and dangerous. Enjoy

    Stephen Fry
