Audible Editor Reviews

The cheeky satirist Hector Hugh Munro, writing under the pseudonym Saki, has crafted here a funny and biting look at the pretentious nature of the upper classes of Edwardian society. Performed with a smooth enthusiasm by well-known Audible narrator, Michelle Ford, Mrs. Packletide's Tiger is the tale of a friendly competition between two old rivals in Colonial India. After Mrs. Bimberton becomes the talk of the town for her recent air travels, Mrs. Packletide decides the best way to one-up her friend is to bag herself a tiger. And, as is often the case in these games of one-upmanship, things get slightly out of hand.

Publisher's Summary

Saki, whose real name was Hector Hugh Munro, was a British writer, whose witty stories satirized the society and culture of his day. He was considered a master of the short story and is often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker.

In "Mrs. Packeltide's Tiger" the title character,a society lady, decides that "bagging a tiger" is the perfect way to trump her rival. She goes on a safari and pays a great deal to lure a very old tiger within range. The results, however, are very different from what she had planned.
