A Bit of Luck for Us All

The best story in this collection has to be "A Bit of Luck for Mabel". Any story with Stanley Ukeridge at its epicenter would be good, but this one is supreme. But then the last three stories are all Ukeridge tales and they'll all good.

On the other hand, the first four stories form a panorama of the looney home life of Bingo Little, a man who gets his money from his devoted, novel-writing wife and his racing tips from dreams and omens. And things only get stickier when she lands him a job ("The Editor Regrets").

The one Mulliner story, "Anselm Gets His Chance" is up to the usual lofty Mulliner standard. And "Romance at Droitgate Spa" stands alone with some of the funniest lines in all of Wodehouse: "We have a lung tonic I think you'll appreciate. We pride ourselves on our cellar."

Just buy it, listen once, then keep it handy whenever it seems like life is getting you down. That P. G. Wodehouse survived a Victorian infancy, found his niche as a writer and continued to write until his dying day is indeed a bit of luck for us all.

Contains stories not included in other anthologies. A nice find for Wodehouse fans who have listened to his other works.
