The Clicking of Cuthbert
Simon and Schuster, 03.01.2013 - 158 Seiten
P.G. Wodehouse turns his keen eye and sharp wit upon golf, with a series of enlightening and amusing tales. This is a not-to-be-missed volume that will tickle any golfer, at any level of play. Wodehouse skewers every convention of the game, and tackles every fairway foible: the tee-talker, the green-gabbler, the prattler on the links, cheaters, temper, luck, betting, and golf-lawyers! And, since it's Wodehouse, there are the usual comic romantic entanglements that threaten the status quo. Topping it all off is a mythic account of how golf-- or gowf-- came to be. This rare little treasure will bring smiles to the rained-out, the snowed-in, the stuck-in-transit, and anyone else who's not out on the course. The Clicking of Cuthbert is a perfect gift item for the golfer who has everything.
