P.G. Wodehouse-Uncle Fred Flits By

Free audio here (tolerable). Uncle Fred Flits By print here. I could not find the print for free, but you can check out the first few pages at the above link.


As previously posted:

You can’t be a successful dictator and design women’s underwear. One or the other. Not both.


Also, this piece discusses some of Wodehouse’s darker characters.  There’s a polished musicality and a keen ear that leads to superb comic timing and great depth.  It’s farcical and moves along nicely, but also a provides a look at a whole society and generation through the goings-on of a lovable fop.

You don’t have to be Anglo, nor an Anglophile, to appreciate such writing I don’t think.

What a ghastly Youtube still:
