P. G. Wodehouse

The Man with Two Left Feet And Other Stories

This collection of short stories is a good example of early Wodehouse. It is here that Jeeves makes his first appearance with these unremarkable words: «Mrs. Gregson to see you, sir.» Years later, when Jeeves became a household name, Wodehouse said he blushed to think of the off-hand way he had treated the man at their first encounter…In the story “Extricating Young Gussie,” we find Bertie Wooster's redoubtable Aunt Agatha «who had an eye like a man-eating fish and had got amoral suasion down to a fine point.” The other stories are also fine vintage Wodehouse: the romance between a lovely girl and a would-be playwright, the rivalry between the ugly policeman and Alf the romeo milkman, and the plight of Henry in the title piece, The Man with Two Left Feet, who fell in love with a dance hostess.

    You've got a cinch. You've only got to hand a story to the police. Any old tale will do for them.

    As a consequence, because his nerves were strained, he lit his cigarette very languidly, very carefully, and with an offensive superiority which was to Mr Birdsey the last straw.
