Book Description

Praise for P.G. Wodehouse: "One of Britain's most talented comic writers."- Time "Wodehouse on golf: a delight. He may have been a hacker on the course, but Wodehouse's drives, putts, and mashie shots were deadly accurate when it came to writing about the game."- The Boston Globe "Mr. Wodehouse's world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in."- Evelyn Waugh "A master, a genius of inventiveness and versatility, brilliant in his use of language, more adroit than almost any novelist since Dickens."- The Daily Telegraph "A brilliantly funny writer-perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has produced."- The Times "Mr. Wodehouse is a creature of pure light and joy."- The New Statesman Golf and love-the two primal obsessions. P. G. Wodehouse displays his most uproarious storytelling and never-ending jollity in these tales of lovers on the links. -Cuthbert Banks, champion golfer, wins the heart of his beloved Adeline, who won't give him the time of day until a visiting Russian author ignores everyone to fawn over Cuthbert's golfing prowess. -One man loses his fiance when he discovers golf late in life (on the eve of his wedding) and just can't stop thinking about it. -One golfing woman attempts to kill (with her niblick) her golfing husband who just won't stop talking during the game (he survives, cured of his garrulity). -One golf fanatic discovers, to his horror, that he has married a croquet player; their union is nearly sundered, until she takes up the ancient and royal game and matches his handicap. -Two men play a single hole sixteen miles long, requiring over eleven-hundred strokes, in a grudge match over the love of one woman. Other loves stand and fall by the vagaries of that infuriating tiny white ball. The end result is a collection of sublimely funny stories, dear to all golfers, and those who love them.
