Kathryn McCary
Hartley--like Saki and E.F. Benson--is one of those authors I can read only if I am in a properly tolerant mood, and even then I only like a few of the stories. But he did write some excellent ones (W.S., a metafiction ghost story, for example). I suspect that some of the less tolerable ones made more sense--and were more fun to read--in the time and place in which he was writing; to a foreigner in the opening decades of the next century, the meaning is sometimes incomprehensible.
