Written when he was 25, LOVE AMONG THE CHICKENS launched P.G. Wodehouse's career as a novelist and introduced the world to Uckridge, one of his most extraordinary inventions. Robert McCrum's introduction shows how this fascinating early book holds within it so many of the themes which Wodehouse was to make his own. This edition uses Wodehouse's 1920 revised edition of the 1906 original.
