Read full description of the books:
The immaculate, verbose, eminently patronising Psmith finds himself, at the tender age of nineteen, entereing Commerce in order to indulge a whim of his father - and not perhaps coincidentally bring joy and light into the life of his school friend Mike, exiled to work in the same Bank by his own family losing its money. Psmith indeed spends joy and light everywhere, and it would be most unkind to call him impertinent or accuse him of blackmail, manipulation, or causing chaos. He also interests himself in politics, like the staunch Socialist he is, and particularly in his unlikable employer's attempts to be elected as a Conservative candidate.
In this novel inarticulate, kind and loyal Mike and the monocled vision that is his best friend Psmith graduate from the Wodehouse school stories to the adult world, and the result is utterly delicious. This is probably the best of the early Wodehouse stories, mostly due to Psmith, who moves with devastatingly unhurried grace through the bleak grey world of London like a juvenile Earl of Ickenham.

Read information about the authorSir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE, was a comic writer who enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of more than seventy years and continues to be widely read over 40 years after his death. 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 prewar 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 more recent writers such as Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie and Terry Pratchett. Sean O'Casey famously called him "English literature's performing flea", a description that Wodehouse used as the title of a collection of his letters to a friend, Bill Townend.
Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a talented playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of fifteen plays and of 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies. He worked with Cole Porter on the musical Anything Goes (1934) and frequently collaborated with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton. He wrote the lyrics for the hit song Bill in Kern's Show Boat (1927), wrote the lyrics for the Gershwin/Romberg musical Rosalie (1928), and collaborated with Rudolf Friml on a musical version of The Three Musketeers (1928).
