About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

Reviews

First published in 1936, this collection offers eight stories about members of the Drones Club and three about Archibald or Modred Mulliner. In "The Amazing Hat Mystery," a mix-up with deliveries of new hats leads two young men to be rejected by their fiances. In the classic "Good-bye to All Cats," a country house full of dogs and cats rends another betrothal asunder. A major delight of Wodehouse's timeless comedy is his enduring optimism. Jonathan Cecil has an amazing range of vocal dexterity, making both the squeakiest of pipsqueaks and the gruffest of old blusterers equally convincing. Highly recommended.
