Leave It To Psmith Hardback
It all starts with an umbrella, the best to be found in the Drones Club.
From such an innocent beginning Wodehouse weaves a comic tale of suspense and romance involving one of his most distinctive early heroes, Ronald Eustace Psmith, monocled wit and devil-may-care boulevardier.
Unusually for Wodehouse, this is not only a light comedy but also an adventure story in which crime and even gun-play drive the plot.

Review by CarltonC
An absolute corker!Another visit to Blandings Castle and in the company of that most debonair of flaneurs, Psmith. This is a joy from start to finish, with the efficient (although flowerpot throwing) Baxter, Lord Emsworth (who has not yet become obsessed by pigs, but who is instead obsessed with flowers), Beach the butler.The plot very loosely involves the theft of Lady Constance's diamond necklace and related romantic sub-plots, but is a joy as Wodehouse really has hit his stride, creating some wonderful set pieces as well as many witty one-liners. Wonderful.
