Young Men in Spats

Ther scrape with the peerless Jeeves out of sight on vacation Poor Bertie nearly becomes unstuck Young Men in Spats is Wodehouse at his most sparkling stories concerning members of the inimitable Drones Club they may be small of brain and short on cash but they are always good for ingenious adventures And in The Luck of the Bodkins the action spans Lon. I adore PG Wodehouse and have been reading and rereading his books at intervals since my early teens Took up this book with great hopes but somehow this collection of short stories fell short somewhere The overall theme was sameyoung men trying to win their sweethearts by hook or by crook often with hilarious results The vintage Wodehouse humor was there but this time round I wasn t much affected it was just above average sort of book though a couple of stories were really interesting I always prefer his novels to anthologies Jeeves and Uncle Fred series being my favorites

Don New York Hollywood and several transatlantic liners as three dapper young men find themselves in various Wodehousian predicaments concerning their love lives and finances Each volume has been reset and printed on Scottish cream wove acid free paper sewn and bound in cloth These novels are elegant and essential additions to any Wodehouse fan's libra. It took a bit of time at least from this particular volume to recognize the reasons for Wodehouse s pre eminance as British Humorist I still did not find that those reasons were able to upturn Adams or Pope but Wodehouse has a wit and verve which cannot be deniedWhat I expected and eventually got was a bit of mastery of the art of the ridiculous situation where the escalation of events and unlikely but usually rationally following coincidences provides an eual escalation of hilarity Wodehouse s wordplay is strong but it is likely that my estimation of him fell in that it was not as strong as the aforementioned authors I find that the greatest wit and humor comes with that one must work for a sense that you have shared something with the author bridged time and space and come to a coy little understanding For me the sense of such a wink and nudge which moves even beyond death connects the fundamental tragedy which underlies humor to the absurd tragedy of life itselfNot everyone needs such bizarre little reuirements met however nor the ego stoking of matching wits with some great author Wodehouse presents little idiomatic tales which achieve the greatest challenge of any author making pointless drivel seem as important in writing as it is in our everyday lives In a world where books seem to have the ability to make all powerful beautiful serendipidous charming gods into boring cliches he is a welcome refreshment
