I have read far enough--four chapters into the first story--to know that these are not fables in the Aesopic sense. I have enjoyed the reading thoroughly and plan to pursue it. What we have here is satire and very enjoyable satire at that. If we need to further specify the genre, then we are probably dealing with a short story or a novella that is satiric. I take it that the general target is England before World War II, though any empire, including the German before World War II, will do as the referent. The edition has a Preface to the American Edition.
