A Dark P.G. Wodehouse

A reappraisal of Saki on the occasion of a BBC documentary: "He...identified strongly with the animal kingdom and used it to fantasise the rebellion of untamed nature against Edwardian nurture, gleefully letting feral creatures slip among his cossetted humans. His tales are loaded with death and destruction, flippancy and cynicism. It’s how you imagine P. G. Wodehouse if he went over to the Dark Side."
