The Unbearable Saki

The Work of H. H. Munro

Sandie Byrne

  • First full-length work on Saki (H. H. Munro) since 1981--and the first ever to evaluate his writing
  • Includes extensive discussion of the texts--stories, novels, and journalism--which are all placed in context
  • Witty, sharp, learned, and beautifully written
  • Engages with criticism of Saki's work and gives a useful survey of the reception of his writing
