Inhaltsangabe: Classic novel, first published in 1922. According to Wikipedia: "Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (15 October 1881 ? 14 February 1975) was an English writer whose body of work includes novels, collections of short stories, and musical theatre. Wodehouse enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of more than seventy years and his prolific writings continue to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of pre-war English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career. An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by modern writers such as Stephen Fry, Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie, Zadie Smith and Terry Pratchett. Journalist and writer Christopher Hitchens commented, "there is not, and never will be, anything to touch him." Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of 15 plays and of 250 lyrics for some 30 musical comedies, many of them produced in collaboration with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton. He worked with Cole Porter on the musical Anything Goes (1934), wrote the lyrics for the hit song "Bill" in Kern's Show Boat (1927), wrote lyrics to Sigmund Romberg's music for the Gershwin ? Romberg musical Rosalie (1928), and collaborated with Rudolf Friml on a musical version of The Three Musketeers (1928)."
Inhaltsangabe: The Clicking of Cuthbert - By P. G. Wodehouse - Classic Short Stories. The Clicking of Cuthbert is a collection of ten short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, all with a golfing theme. It was first published in the United Kingdom on February 3, 1922, by Herbert Jenkins Ltd of London. It was later published in the United States by George H. Doran of New York on May 28, 1924, under the title Golf Without Tears. There are some slight differences between the two editions, chiefly as regards the names of places and golfers, which were adapted to suit the country of publication. The first story in the collection introduces the Oldest Member, a repeat Wodehouse character, who narrates all but the last story. Three stories in the collection?"The Clicking of Cuthbert," "Ordeal by Golf," and "The Long Hole"?were filmed in 1924 as part of a series of six films of Wodehouse golf stories. Peter Haddon played Cuthbert.
