This book features a baker's dozen of P.G. Wodehouse's finest short stories. "What a very, very lucky person you are. Spread out before you are the finest and funniest words from the finest and funniest writer the past century ever knew." (Stephen Fry). Aunts, engagements, misunderstandings and hangover cures; this delightful collection from 'the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness' (Julian Fellowes) brings together a baker's dozen of P. G. Wodehouse's finest short stories. In this beautiful edition we find Bertie Wooster and Jeeves embarking on foolhardy quests and inspired rescue missions. We discover Ukridge, the ever-optimistic animated blob of mustard, undeterred in his big broad outlook, no matter how bleak things look, while the Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred, continues enjoying life, quite oblivious to the embarrassment he's causing. And, as snow falls on the links outside the Angler's Rest, Mr Mulliner, the Oldest Member at the Golf Club, settles in to recount tales of romance and ghosts, and keep the tide of intellectual - albeit rather one-sided - conversation flowing. It includes: Jeeves and the Yule-Tide Spirit (Very Good, Jeeves); One Touch of Nature (The Man With Two Left Feet); The Ordeal of Young Tuppy (Very Good, Jeeves); Ukridge's Dog College (Ukridge); The Story of William (Meet Mr Mulliner); Uncle Fred Flits By (Young Men in Spats); How's That, Umpire (Nothing Serious); Honeysuckle Cottage (Meet Mr Mulliner); The Spot of Art (Very Good, Jeeves); The Heel of Achilles (The Clicking of Cuthbert); Indian Summer of an Uncle (Very Good, Jeeves); Romance at Droitgate Spa (Eggs, Beans and Crumpets); and, Sundered Hearts (The Clicking of Cuthbert).
