The stories in this volume were written before the First World War.
But such was P.G. Wodehouse's amiable genius that they have aged not a jot. Like ancient crusted port they have matured with the years, and perhaps only now can their timeless humour be savoured with its full bouquet.

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was an English humorist, whose body of work includes novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He enjoyed enormous popular success during a career that lasted more than seventy years and his many writings continue to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of a pre- and post-World War I English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education and youthful writing career.About the Author:
