This is the book that introduces the character of Rupert Psmith (the "P" is silent), who is something of a dandy, and has the uncanny ability to pass through the most amazing adventures unruffled. Mike Jackson is a schoolboy cricketeer who is sent to a smaller school because of his poor grades. There he meets and becomes friends with Psmith, an ex-Etonian cricketeer. Together they pull pranks, thwart and overbearing house master, and end up beating Mike's former school in a climactic cricket match.

P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) spent much of his life in Southampton, New York, but was born in England and educated in Surrey. He became an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books and twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.From Library Journal:
Released as a single volume in 1909, the first two of this trio follow the misadventures of young cricket ace Mike Jackson and his chum at school. Published a little later in Wodehouse's career (1928), Money for Nothing serves up a Romeo and Juliet-like tale of the romance between the offspring of two feuding buffoons. Typical Wodehouse British farces.
