P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) was a beloved British humorist whose writing career spanned nearly every literary mode. His discerning wit and effortless prose gained him international praise. In his delightful series of Psmith novels, Wodehouse tracks the adventures of an adroit dandy, unfazed by even the most tumultuous situations. The Psmith tales are classics of British comic melodrama, sending the reader through a lighthearted world with an unshakeable Psmith at the helm. In "Psmith in the City", the adventure continues, following the novel's namesake and his cricket-obsessed companion Mike Jackson in their new life in finance at the New Asiatic Bank. As is expected, hilarity ensues when their passion for cricket becomes an obstacle to successful employment. In this novel we see all of Wodehouse's comic genius and mastery of farce. Wodehouse is no moralist, zealot, or philosopher-he is a humorist, and a brilliant one at that, who bring levity to a heavy world. The power of humor is here at its highest in the witty "Psmith in the City."
