Psmith and his friend Mike are sent by their fathers to work in the City. But work is the last thing on Psmith's mind; surely there are more interesting things to do with the day than spend it in a bank? Unfortunately the natives aren't conducive to his socialising within work hours, but all's fair in love and work as the monocled Old Etonian, with a little grudging help from Mike, begins to rope in allies in order to reform the bank manager and make him A Decent Member of Society. And if all else fails, there's always blackmail. Download and start listening now!

    " Why has it taken me thirty years to learn about Psmith? This is hysterical. I love Wodehouse and I love this character. So funny. Light easy read. I need more Psmith books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 12/13/2010

    " More Wodehousian fun. My current favorite character, the debonair, erudite, garrulous socialist Psmith (the P is silent) ends up "working" in a bank. Absolutely delightful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meave | 8/21/2010

    " It's just so perfectly, delicately written that it makes for excellent depression 2.0 escapist literature. I could read a dozen books about Psmith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 2/6/2010

    " Psmith, with a silent p as in ptarmigan. Delighted to recommend a one hundred year old humor treat written by Plum Wodehouse, one of the greatest humorists and stylists to ever tap at a typewriter! Smith ranks with Bertie and Jeeves. Great enduring fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 8/1/2009

    " Psmith (with a silent P) is an unforgettable character! This is the first time I've read of him, and concerns his adventures with his friend Mike at their first job, working in a London bank. "

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.
