P. G. Wodehouse
Jaunt with Psmith (the preliminary “P” is not sounded, as in "pshrimp”), one of P.G. Wodehouse’s most delightful creations, as he navigates Mike Jackson and himself through the hustle and bustle of the City and the world of high finance. When Mike’s father suffers a significant pecuniary loss, Mike, a sportsman to the last, forgoes his Cambridge education and seeks gainful employment in London at the New Asiatic Bank. There Psmith joins him and, determined to see their futures settled, sets about charting a bright and beneficial course toward a happy state of affairs for one and all.
“Psmith’s work—well, it stood alone. You couldn’t compare it with anything. There are no degrees in perfection. Psmith’s work was perfect, and there was an end to it.”
Along the way, Psmith and Jackson push the Bank’s manager, J. Bickersdyke, to the brink of madness, mingle with Socialists at Clapham Common, and find time for plenty of cricket, with Psmith dispensing pearls of his witty wisdom to one and all along the way.
Sir Pelham Grenville (P. G.) Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English author and playwright and one of the premier humorists of the twentieth century. His inimitable prose, in the words of Evelyn Waugh, “has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” Wodehouse’s hundreds of written works include the masterful Jeeves & Wooster and Blandings Castle stories.
