English-Australian narrator Rupert Degas has a grand time giving voice to Saki’s many tales of blustering, tyrannical aunts; mischievous children; and that most important of all English inventions—the twit. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss the stories of Saki (Hector Hugh Munro, 1870-1916), whose work is especially fun on audio. Degas reads the stories well—few do better at satirizing the foibles and follies of the upper classes. Listen closely, and you’ll hear why everyone from P.G. Wodehouse to Mony Python owes a huge debt to this Edwardian comic genius. Read the full review of the audiobook on AudioFile’s website.
