H.H. Munro, better known by the pen name Saki, was a prolific Scottish author of the Edwardian era, considered as the master of short stories and compared to O Henry and Dorothy Parker. He is best known for his witty, sometimes whimsical, often cynical and bizarre short stories - his works is the attempt to satirize the social pretension, unkindness, and stupidity through the flippant wit and acerbic humor. "The Reticence of Lady Anne" is a short story, in which a put-upon husband tries to patch up an argument with his wife, not realising that she is sitting in stony silence because… she is dead. The author depicts the portrait of man, which is indeed a caricature of society. As well as other Saki's stories, this one is characterized by pithiness and black humor. All characters make the reader laugh, so you will certainly enjoy reading it!
