Psmith in the City | [P.G. Wodehouse]

Psmith in the City

"Work," said Psmith, with simple dignity. "I am now a member of the staff of this bank. Its interests are my interests. Psmith, the individual, ceases to exist, and there springs into being Psmith, the cog in the wheel of the New Asiatic Bank; Psmith, the link in the bank's chain; Psmith, the Worker. "I shall not spare myself," he proceeded earnestly. "I shall toil with all the accumulated energy of one who, up till now, has only known what work is like from hearsay."

Publisher's Summary

"Work," said Psmith, with simple dignity. "I am now a member of the staff of this bank. Its interests are my interests. Psmith, the individual, ceases to exist, and there springs into being Psmith, the cog in the wheel of the New Asiatic Bank; Psmith, the link in the bank's chain; Psmith, the Worker. "I shall not spare myself," he proceeded earnestly. "I shall toil with all the accumulated energy of one who, up till now, has only known what work is like from hearsay."

"You and I together, not forgetting Comrade Jackson, the pet of the Smart Set, will toil early and late till we boost up this Postage Department into a shining model of what a Postage Department should be. What that is at present, I do not exactly know."

Psmith and his friend Mike Jackson have been pressed into jobs in the city. Psmith intends to keep his knowledge of work limited to hearsay, and uses his wit and sangfroid to smooth over the world of business for Mike and himself.

    "Such a dilemma"

    It's such a dilemma. Jonathan Cecil does a far better job reading the PSmith books, but the Frederick Davidson recordings have much better sound quality. Davidson presents PSmith as if he is essentially a wordier Bertie Wooster. His tone is all snide-ness and knowing. But PSmith is a far more intelligent, and a far FROM hapless, creature. He is stylish, to be sure, and somewhat affected, but more-than-perfectly competent. Cecil nails the tone, and in his various readings, makes each of the two characters clear, and different. I'm going back to the Cecil.

    "Sound quality"
    Would you try another book from P.G. Wodehouse and/or Frederick Davidson?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Terrible sound quality. Hard to understand. Get the other audio performance with Jonathan Cecil.
