Synopsis: A Collection of short stories by P.G. Wodehouse, featuring the title story The Man Upstairs

There were three distinct stages in the evolution of Annette Brougham's attitude towards the knocking in the room above. In the beginning it had been merely a vague discomfort. Absorbed in the composition of her waltz, she had heard it almost subconsciously. The second stage set in when it became a physical pain like red-hot pincers wrenching her mind from her music. Finally, with a thrill in indignation, she knew it for what it was -- an insult. The unseen brute disliked her playing, and was intimating his views with a boot-heel. Defiantly, with her foot on the loud pedal, she struck -- almost slapped -- the keys once more. ''Bang!'' from the room above. ''Bang! Bang!''

Included in this collection, read by Frederick Davidson, are eighteen more of Wodehouse's classic pre-World War II stories: Something to Worry About, Deep Waters, When Doctors Disagree, By Advice of Counsel, Rough-Hew Them How We Will, The Man Who Disliked Cats, Ruth in Exile, Archibald's Benefit, The Man-the Maid-and the Miasma, The Good Angel, Pots o'Money, Out of School, Three from Dunsterville, The Tuppenny Millionaire, Ahead of Schedule, Sir Agravaine, The Goal-Keeper and the Plutocrat, and In Alcala.

About the Author: PELHAM GRENVILLE WODEHOUSE (1881-1975), an English-born journalist and novelist, lived in several different countries before settling in the United States after World War II. In a career spanning over sixty years, he wrote more than ninety books. During the 1920s, Wodehouse collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals, and in the 1930s, he expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
