Tobermory and Other Stories

(2018)
A collection of stories by

 
 
'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.
