Publisher Comments:

One of the most perennially popular of all the Wodehouse titles, Leave it to Psmith, according to Wilfrid Sheed, "helps to usher in the Wodehouse golden age" — the age of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, Blandings Castle and all the rest, among whom the ingenious Psmith ("The p is silent, as in phthisis, psychic, and ptarmigan") is entirely worthy to be counted. A debonair young Englishman who has quit the fish business, "even though there is money in fish and decided to support himself by doing anything that he is hired to do by anyone, Psmith, wandering in and out of romantic, suspenseful and invariably hilarious situations, is in the great Wodehouse tradition.

Constant Reader, May 15, 2010 (view all comments by Constant Reader)
This is the best novel of Wodehouse's startlingly large output. The title character takes full advantage of a situation that would have most of us running for cover - posing as a poet in a castle in order to steal a valuable diamond necklace, which involves fighting a pair of professional burglars, dodging the suspicions of the castle secretary, and courting the young lady of his dreams. Wodehouse has created one of the funniest and most eccentric characters in English literature; Psmith might be called the comic version of Sherlock Holmes. This is Wodehouse in peak form!
