Product Description

The stories of The Man With Two Left Feet, first published together in 1917, show Wodehouse perfecting his craft. Characters include a talking dog, a private eye who wants to be an actor, a bank clerk who cannot dance, an ugly policeman, a baseball-mad businessman, and a black cat. The star attraction of the volume for most readers will probably be "Excruciating Young Gussie," the first story to feature Jeeves, though in a minor role. His employer Bertie—furnished with an Aunt Agatha but no surname—has not yet, like Wodehouse himself, "appreciated the man's qualities." All the stories, however, bear the unmistakable imprint of the author's comic genius.

Praise for the Work of P.G. Wodehouse
“Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever.” —Douglas Adams

“Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own.”—Evelyn Waugh
