"A brilliantly funny writer—perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced.
" — The Times (London)
It was a morning when all nature shouted, “Fore!” Thus begins this hilarious anthology of P. G. Wodehouse’s collection of nine short golf stories. Originally published in magazines between 1921 and 1926, the tales lead readers on an amusing nine-hole course of courtship, friendship, and business relationships. The narrator, the golf club’s oldest member, observes the club’s constituents’ various golfing emotional setbacks and victories and forces his audience to listen to long anecdotal stories, presenting the sport as an eternal metaphor. Reflecting Wodehouse’s brilliant humor, piercing satire, and sharp wit, the compilation includes “The Awakening of Rollo Podmarsh,” “Chester Forgets Himself,” “The Heart of a Goof,” “High Stakes,” “Jane Gets Off the Fairway,” “Keeping in with Vosper,” “The Magic Plus Fours,” “The Purification of Rodney Spelvin,” and “Rodney Fails to Qualify.”
