This is a good example of early Wodehouse. It is here that Jeeves makes his first appearance with these unremarkable words: “Mrs. Gregson to see you, sir.” Years later, when Jeeves became a household name, Wodehouse said he blushed to think of the offhand way he had treated the man at their first encounter.

In the story “Extricating Young Gussie,” we find Bertie Wooster’s redoubtable Aunt Agatha “who had an eye like a man-eating fish and had got amoral suasion down to a fine point.”

The other stories are also fine vintage Wodehouse: the romance between a lovely girl and a would-be playwright, the rivalry between the ugly policeman and Alf the Romeo milkman, the plight of Henry in the title piece, The Man With Two Left Feet, who fell in love with a dance hostess, and more.

Included in this collection are:

1. “Bill the Bloodhound”
2. “Extricating Young Gussie”
3. “Wilton’s Holiday”
4. “The Mixer I: He Meets a Shy Gentleman”
5. “The Mixer II: He Moves in Society”
6. “Crowned Heads”
7. “At Geinsenheimer’s”
8. “The Making of Mac’s”
9. “One Touch of Nature”
10. “Black for Luck”
11. “The Romance of an Ugly Policeman”
12. “A Sea of Troubles”
13. “The Man with Two Left Feet”

    " The Man With Two Left Feet is a collection of very early short stories, including the first appearance of Jeeves, and is fascinating as a snapshot of a writer learning his trade, although perhaps not his best... "

    " Always fun. These are pretty early stories, and some are quite different from what came later. The first Wooster story is here, although Jeeves just has a bit part. "
