    Reginald (Kindle) A familiarity with Edwardian England and Victorian literature increases enjoyment of this book a lot because of the constant references I am reading this aloud to others and sometimes we're laughing so hard we're crying We all adore Reginald although he is so terrible it would be hard to have him in the houseIt's hard to pick just a few epigrams because Munro is such a master I wish I could just copy out 'Reginald on House Parties' and 'Reg

A funny often anarchic collections of short fiction about Reginald a mischievous young man who delights in causing trouble especially for older conservative members of society The narrator of Reginald statesI did it I who should have known better I persuaded Reginald to go to the McKillops garden party against his will We all make mistakes occasionallyThat s a bit of understatement considering Reginald s behavior at the partyThen there s the attempt of the vicar s daughter to reform Reginald She mistakenly allows him to supervise the annual outing of the choirboys that culminates in a Bacchanalian procession through the villageThe singing had died down long before the main street was reached but the miserable wailing of pipes brought the inhabitants to their doors Reginald said he had seen something like it in pictures the villagers had seen nothing like it in their lives and remarked as much freelyReginald s family never forgave him They had no sense of humourThen there s his prank on the rather pompous Miss Langshan SmithThere was a paper pinned on her door with a signed reuest that she might be called particularly early on the morrow Such an opportunity does not come twice in a lifetime I covered up everything except the signature with another notice to the effect that before these words should meet the eye she would have ended a misspent life was sorry for the trouble she was giving and would like a military funeral A few minutes later I violently exploded an air filled paper bag on the landing and gave a stage moan that could have been heard in the cellars Then I pursued my original intention and went to bed The noise those people made in forcing open the good lady s door was positively indecorous she resisted gallantly but I believe they searched her for bullets for about a uarter of an hour as if she had been an historic battlefieldReginald also sees himself as a philosopher and has opinions on just about everything For example on auntsThen there are aunts They are always a difficult class to deal with in the matter of presents The trouble is that one never catches them really young enough By the time one has educated them to an appreciation of the fact that one does not wear red woollen mittens in the West End they die or uarrel with the family or do something eually inconsiderate That is why the supply of trained aunts is always so precariousOn canaries I knew a canary once that had been trying for months and years to hatch out a family and everyone looked upon it as a blameless infatuation like the sale of Delagoa Bay which would be an annual loss to the Press agencies if it ever came to pass and one day the bird really did bring it off in the middle of family prayers I say the middle but it was also the end you can t go on being thankful for daily bread when you are wondering what on earth very new canaries expect to be fed onEducationAnd then there s the Education uestion not that I can see that there s anything to worry about in that direction To my mind education is an absurdly over rated affair At least one never took it very seriously at school where everything was done to bring it prominently under one s notice Anything that is worth knowing one practically teaches oneself and the rest obtrudes itself sooner or later The reason one s elders know so comparatively little is because they have to unlearn so much that they acuired by way of education before we were bornChildrenIt is dreadful to think that other people s grandchildren may one day rise up and call one amiable There are moments when one sympathises with HerodReginald is like a mix of MASH the Marx brothers and P G Wodehouse The stories sometimes lag which is why I only gave it four stars but there is a lot that is very funny especially Reginald s Choir Treat and Reginald s Christmas Revel There is a seuel Reginald in Russia which I have not read yet
