Summary

Meet the Young Men in Spats - all members of the Drones Club, all crossed in love and all busy betting their sometimes nonexistent fortunes on unlikely outcomes - that's when they're not recovering from driving their sports cars through rather than round Marble Arch.

These wonderful comic short stories are the essence of innocent fun. In them you'll encounter some of Wodehouse's favourite characters - including, for the first time, his future hero Uncle Fred. The collection is widely regarded as one of Wodehouse's best and includes one of his own favourites, 'The Amazing Hat Mystery'.

Wodehouse brilliance!

The whole thing was great from start to finish. The narrator is THE definitive Wodehouse narrator. Buy it!

Hate that audible asks for headlines...

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. P.G Wodehouse never fails to deliver. My only disappointment is that audible don’t seem to be able to divide multiple story audiobooks into proper chapters & list titles so you can easily pick which story you want to listen to. The chapters don’t actually relate to individual stories with some stories overlapping chapters. It doesn’t make any sense to do it this way. Surely it isn’t difficult to divide the audiobook into chapters with each chapter being one story & to note the title of the story.
