The Collector's Wodehouse series continues --three more sparkling classics from the master of hijinks and social comedy P. G. Wodehouse is recognized as the greatest English comic writer of the twentieth century.

Launched on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, each Overlook Wodehouse is the finest edition of the master's work ever published.

St Austin’s School is the setting for these twelve delightful early Wodehouse stories. A nostalgic look at English public-school life at the turn of the twentieth century, the cricket-filled tales are made enjoyable today by the young Wodehouse’s gentle humor and witty turn of phrase.
