Gloriously English

I am the wife of a golfer of 30 years experience and enjoyed these stories considerably although some of the golf language is very dated.
I love the subtlety and quaintness of Wodehouse and the wonderful accent of the narrator.
The length of the stories was convenient for listening to one at a time.
Most of all I love the 'Englishness' of these stories.
Any old or young golfer or observer of the game should get a good giggle or two out of this collection.
