Collected Short Stories of Saki
'All decent people live beyond their incomes nowadays, and those who aren't respectable live beyond other people's'.
Saki (H.H. Munro) stands alongside Anton Chekhov and O Henry as a master of the short story.

This collection includes Sredni Vastor and The Unrest Cure.
'We all know that Prime Ministers are wedded to the truth, but like other married couples they sometimes live apart'
