"And do you really ask us to believe...that you have discovered a means for instructing animals in the art of human speech?”
Master Storyteller and performer Robert Lloyd Parry is back with Saki's eerie, unworldly tales of Beasts and Superbeasts.
Welcome to the strange, baffling and sometimes macabre world of Saki, where animals often behave like men, and men sometimes return the complement. The writer, Hugh Hector Munro, died in a trench in France in 1916, but his uniquely hilarious stories satirising Edwardian society sing as loudly today as they ever did.
Considered the master of the short story, Saki transports us to a world of ghosts and fantasy, beasts and demons, and shocks with twists, irony and surprise endings.
