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.

Contains: The Blood-Feud of Toad-Water, Gabriel-Ernest , The Bag, The Mouse, Esme , Tobermory, Mrs Packletide's Tiger, Hermann the Irascible, The Unrest-Cure, The Jesting of Arlington Stringham, Sredni Vashtar, The Chaplet, Filboid Studge, The Music on the Hill, The Hounds of Fate, The She-Wolf, Laura, The Boar-Pig, The Open Window, The Schartz-Metterklume Method, The Storyteller, The Lumber Room, The Philanthropist and the Happy Cat, The Toys of Peace, Tea, A Bread-and-Butter Miss, Bertie s Christmas Eve, Forewarned, The Interlopers and The Bull
