A Shot in the Dark

Author(s): Saki


In Saki's world a despotic dog becomes his owner's master, a rural community is hoodwinked into believing in the predictive powers of a pair of friends, and Eve stubbornly refuses to touch the Forbidden Fruit...Although unquestionably of its time, each story ridicules the follies of the society around its author, follies still all too clearly recognisable today.
