Saki (1870-1916)

Reginald’s Christmas Revel

Christmas with the Babwolds must be endured after every sixth invitation, and these apparently dull people, lead Reginald to doing whatever he can to amuse himself (if not the Babwolds), wrecking a game of charades and frightening the life out of Miss Langshan Smith.  Delightful satire of Edwardian society and it made me smile!

See here for unashamed Sake fan mail.

Sake was the pen name for Hector Hugh Munro.

I sourced this story from Penguin’s Selected Short Stories of Saki (1930 edition), orange cover, yellowing pages, lowly smell of old books, and kindly donated  by K for the purposes of this blogging exercise.
