Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Wodehouse series continues?a sparkling story collection from the master of hijinks and social comedy

These early stories, first published together in 1917, show Wodehouse perfecting his craft. Characters include a talking dog, a private eye who wants to be an actor, a bank clerk who cannot dance, an ugly policeman, a baseball-mad businessman, and a black cat. The star attraction of the volume for most reders will probably be 'Excruciating Young Gussie,' the first story to feature Jeeves, though in a minor role. His employer, Bertie (furnished with an Aunt Agatha but no surname) has not yet, like Wodehouse himself, 'appreciated the man's qualities.' All the stories, however, bear the unmistakable imprint of the author's comic genius.

With each volume edited and reset and printed on Scottish cream-wove, acid-free paper, sewn and bound in cloth, these novels are elegant additions to the legions of Wodehouse fans? libraries.
