About the Book

The Man with Two Left Feet and Other Stories is a collection of short stories written by British author P. G. Wodehouse. It was originally released in the US on February 1, 1933, by A. L. Burt and Co., New York, and on March 8, 1917, in the UK by Methuen & Co., London. The Strand Magazine in the UK and The Red Book Magazine or The Saturday Evening Post in the US were the two journals where each story had previously been published. It is a compilation of various stories, some of which are more serious than Wodehouse's better-known comedy fiction. Although one humorous story, "Extricating Young Gussie," is notable for featuring two of Wodehouse's most well-known characters, Jeeves and his master Bertie Wooster (although Bertie's surname is withheld and Jeeves's role is very small), as well as Bertie's dreaded Aunt Agatha, Wodehouse biographer Richard Usborne claimed that the collection was "mostly sentimental apprentice work." Henry Pitfield Rice is a young man employed in a detective bureau. He falls in love with chorus girl Alice Weston, but she refuses to marry someone in her profession. Since he can't sing or dance, Henry tries to find a job on the stage but is unsuccessful.
