Publisher's Summary

This collection of short stories is a good example of early Wodehouse. It is here that Jeeves makes his first appearance with these unremarkable words: "Mrs. Gregson to see you, sir." Years later, when Jeeves became a household name, Wodehouse said he blushed to think of the off-hand way he had treated the man at their first encounter...In the story "Extricating Young Gussie," we find Bertie Wooster's redoubtable Aunt Agatha "who had an eye like a man-eating fish and had got amoral suasion down to a fine point." The other stories are also fine vintage Wodehouse: the romance between a lovely girl and a would-be playwright, the rivalry between the ugly policeman and Alf the romeo milkman, and the plight of Henry in the title piece, The Man with Two Left Feet, who fell in love with a dance hostess.

Chapters don't cue to the stories

The narration sounds exemplary so far, but I must complain that the six+ hours of audio is divided into ten "Chapters" that don't cue to the stories. There should be 13 short stories, it would be nice if there were 13 "Chapters" and they each cued to the beginning of a story.

The incomparable Fredrick Davidson reading a Wodehouse classic

What a great surprise find! Clever humor in classic Wodehouse style, but it’s Fredrick Davidson’s reading that puts this in my list of among the best audio performances I’ve heard.

Not the best Wodehouse, but Wodehouse nonetheless.

This is an enjoyable and entertaining bunch of short stories. They are not quite as stunningly witty as some later pieces, but they are still a fun listen.
