The Clicking of Cuthbert - P.G. Wodehouse, Jonathan Cecil What a charming little collection of golf-related yarns. As I may have mentioned, although I don't play at all I'm a moderately fluent speaker of golf. (Thanks be to Wikipedia for the translations for the old fashioned names of clubs that preceded the current, rather prosaic numbering system.)
This was my first Wodehouse, but certainly won't be my last. There were so many wonderful turns of phrase and quirky descriptions, so many quick, acute insights into human character to enjoy in these 10 short stories. I particularly like the idea of putting oneself outside a cup of tea.
