P. G. Wodehouse’s famed collection of ten stories marks the reappearance of many old friends—who find themselves in delightfully absurd situations. In “How’s That, Umpire?” a mutual hatred of cricket reunites two lovers. In “Birth of a Salesman,” Lord Emsworth has strayed from Blandings Castle to become an encyclopedia salesman for a day. “Success Story” tells of Ukridge’s finest swindle yet—after which he finally emerges triumphant in the struggle against his fearsome aunt Julia. Other stories include “The Shadow Passes,” “Bramley Is So Bracing,” “Up from the Depths,” “Feet of Clay,” “Excelsior,” “Rodney Has a Relapse,” and “Tangled Hearts.”

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
