This ebook is complete with linked Table of Content making navigation quicker and easier.

These short, very slight stories from early in Wodehouse's (A Gentleman of Leisure, Audio Reviews, LJ 1/95) career amount to apprentice work, really. Many of the tales deal with sweet, unusual varieties of courtship and show the flair for comic understatement that served the author so well later on in his prolific career. Characters, though, are underdeveloped, and the stories are too short to allow the sort of comically complex situations that the mature Wodehouse was able to exploit so well.
