"The Elk" - The grandmother of Bertie Thropplestance is intent on making sure he marries the right woman, and it would seem that their tame elk would have a large part to play in the charade!
"A Holiday Task" - a lady has lost her memory and acquires the help of Kenelm Jerton to help her eliminate all the possibilities from her inquiries. A bout of mischievous methods lead to a surprising conclusion.
"The Schartz-Metterklume Method" - At a railway station, an arrogant and overbearing woman mistakes the mischievous Lady Carlotta for the governess she expected. Lady Carlotta, deciding not to correct the mistake, presents herself as a proponent of "the Schartz-Metterklume method" of making children understand history by acting it out themselves. She chooses a rather unsuitable historical episode for her first lesson.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
People who despise nuance and wit
Would you recommend Another Trio of Saki to your friends? Why or why not?
Some devices won't allow you to hear the audio sample. Beware! Don't buy it if you can't hear the narration first. Even very popular readers might not be to your taste. A grating voice ruins a book.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joy Gelardi?
A foppish Englishman. An actor with a fine ear.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Another Trio of Saki?
The writing is fine. The narration leaves much to be desired.
