Review by EnglishPatient
Each chapter is a self-contained short story, and there are plenty of them making this book an ideal companion on a journey if you can make enough room in your bag for it. The writing shows that apparent effortlessness that only comes from immense talent and very hard work. The gallery of characters is pure Wodehouse - formidable aunts, American heiresses, ineffectual young men with vastly more money than sense. But the setting of the golf club offers a more varied social landscape than either Blandings or Bertie's circle can provide, which is why I actually prefer the golf stories to the more famous Jeeves books.
