About the Book

The Man Upstairs and Other Stories is an anthology of short stories written by P.G. Wodehouse. Most of the stories deal with the subject of romance and love. Majority of the stories initially got published in Cosmopolitan, Collier's Weekly, and the Strand Magazine. Later on, they were also made available to readers in the US in The Swoop! And Other Stories (1979) and The Uncollected Wodehouse (1976). The first story in the collection "The Man Upstairs", is a story about a rich man disguising himself as a middle class, untalented artist to get close to Annette, a girl he fell in love with at first sight. Following the story of a rebellious girl who is sent to a village in Hampshire by her father, "Something to Worry About" gives us a look into the psyche of Sally, a movie aficionado, who ends up experiencing a movie-like love story with Tom. Similar to The Man Upstairs, "Deep Waters" follows the story of George Barnert Callender who falls in love at first sight with Mary and pretends to not to know swimming while being an excellent swimmer, just so he could make her acquaintance.
