The Clicking of Cuthbert
Arrow, 2008 - 224 Seiten
A Golf collection
The Oldest Member knows everything that has ever happened on the golf course - and a great deal more besides.
Take the story of Cuthbert, for instance. He's helplessly in love with Adeline, but what use are his holes in one when she's in thrall to Culture and prefers rising young writers to winners of the French Open? But enter a Great Russian Novelist with a strange passion, and Cuthbert's prospects are transformed. Then look at what happens to young Mitchell Holmes, who misses short putts because of the uproar of the butterflies in the adjoining meadows. His career seems on the skids - but can golf redeem it?
The kindly but shrewd gaze of the Oldest Member picks out some of the funniest stories Wodehouse ever wrote.
