Publisher's Summary

His disreputable career encompasses bookmaking and dog-training, fight-management, and insurance broking. Plagued by bad debts, bad luck, and the formidable Aunt Julia, Ukridge remains as resourceful and irrepressible as ever.

Great fun

This is early Wodehouse, but the master is getting well into his stride for his later masterpieces. Ukridge has the irrepressible optimism and inventiveness of a loveable Wodehouse rogue; he is a supremely imaginative and supremely incompetent entrepreneur (or unlucky if you take his viewpoint), always taking the 'broad vision', not trifling with details, always in search of capital. It would be interesting to see him on 'Dragon's Den'! The book is a series of short stories about his various mishaps and adventures as told by his long suffering pal Corky, and is full of affectionate and daft humour.

Jonathan Cecil narrates it all superbly and his perfect pacing allows you to savour the utter perfection of Wodehouse's prose, and he brings the characters splendidly to life. This is quite an old recording, so sound quality is not all that it might be, but you soon get used to it.

Great fun.
