Book Description

The Man Upstairs is a collection of witty and romantic short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. Most of the stories had previously appeared in magazines, generally Strand Magazine (Sherlock Homes) in the UK and Collier's Weekly in the United States.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!"
