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 listener 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 humour is here at its highest in the witty Psmith in the City.

The recording left something to be desired
It is a good yarn with some decent funny bits.
The hustings at which Psmith attends and interjects with carefully chosen words and causes a riot.
Indeed it did but there were quality issues with the recording that meant that it was below the usual standard from Audible.
You might if you had time. I was sufficiently engaged to take it with me in the car to listen to on the way to work.
It sounded as if the recording had been badly edited. Many phrases were cut off at the last word so you could not hear the ending of the word or phrase. This was very irritating and was a disatraction from the story.
