9780140012729: The Man Upstairs and Other Stories

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.

About the Author:

PELHAM GRENVILLE WODEHOUSE (1881-1975), an English-born journalist and novelist, lived in several different countries before settling in the United States after World War II. In a career spanning over sixty years, he wrote more than ninety books. During the 1920s, Wodehouse collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals, and in the 1930s, he expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.

From AudioFile:

That most active of Wodehouse's audio interpreters, Frederick Davidson, takes microphone in hand and reads a group of the master's pre-WWI stories. This was an early stage of Wodehouse's long career, and the stories, while timelessly funny, are less lively than his later works, such as the Jeeves and Bertie masterpieces. Davidson has his usual troublewith young female characters; he's seemingly unable to render them other than brainless, breathy nitwits. But there's usually only one such character in each story, so he gets away with it. His overall narrative voice is wry, British and almost drawling, and one supposes that this is pretty much how Wodehouse himself would sound. D.W. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
