Although the precise origin of Hector Hugh Munro's pen name is still unclear, writing under the name 'Saki' allowed the Edwardian satirist wide-ranging latitude to skewer the mores of the period. This collection includes a tale featuring Reginald, a multi-faceted character who embodies both the excesses and the virtues of the period.
