The Man Upstairs, Hardback Book

The Man Upstairs Hardback

Part of the Everyman's Library P G WODEHOUSE series

Hardback

Description

Wodehouse's well-known gift for satisfying plots and comic surprises is evident on every page, but there are also signs of his debt to earlier writers in the realistic tradition.

Set mainly in London or New York, many of the stories concern ordinary people - shopassistants, schoolmasters, secretaries, servants, unsuccessful writers - living the life of rented rooms and cheap cafes Wodehouse knew well from his own experience.

Yet there is nothing sad or gloomy about these tales.

Far from it: they are brimming with life and energy, beautifully written and invariably delightful. And for Wodehouse addicts there is also a goodly sprinkling of goofy young men about town and their valets to satisfy the strongest appetites
