Tales of St Austin's Hardback
Part of the Everyman's Library P G Wodehouse series
St Austin's school (as featured in "The Pothunters") is the setting for twelve delightful early Wodehouse stories.
The familiar ingredients - and some of the same characters - are present: cricket and rugby loom large, school colours are gained, tricks are played, exams avoided, revenge wreaked upon enemies, and the honour of School and House upheld.
This is a nostalgic look at English public-school life at the turn of the twentieth century, made enjoyable today by the young Wodehouse's gentle humour and witty turn of phrase.
