Beschrijving

For Mr and Mrs Thackenbury it seems like there are too many holidays. They start talking about the hypocrisy behind all these holidays, such as Christmas for example. Yet, they love listing some of the people they would like to honor on that day and discuss what they would give to them as a present. After all, they really enjoy having a good time together.

If you want to find out what else Mr and Mrs Thackenbury are talking about, read Saki’s short story "The Feast of Nemesis" from 1914.

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

Hector Hugh Munro (1870 – 1916), better known by his artistic pseudonym Saki, was a British short story writer and playwright. He is considered the master of short stories. His works are often mischievous and macabre, which caught the attention of the general audience. Due to his sexual orientation, which was not tolerated by the society of his time, Munro decided to use Saki as his pseudonym so he could work.

Over de auteur
Photo Saki

Saki (1870-1916) was het pseudoniem van Hector Hugh Munro, een naam gekozen uit de Rubaiyat van Omar Khayyam. Hij was een schrijver wiens grappige en fantastische verhalen het sociale milieu van de Edwardiaanse periode op een macabere en venijnige manier op de hak namen.

Hij wordt gezien als de meester van het korte verhaal en wordt vaak vergeleken met O. Henry en Dorothy Parker. Zijn verhaal Het open raam is misschien zijn meest bekende, met de eindzin 'Romance at short notice was her specialty.' (Bron: Wikipedia)
