Mr. Mulliner Speaking - P. G. Wodehouse 1929 - Herbert Jenkins Limited, London - First Edition, In early issue dust jacket The second of three collections of 'stretchers' told by Mr Mulliner, nine stories about relatives near and far. In Those in Peril on the Tee Mr Mulliner becomes, to all intents and purposes, the Oldest Member, and introduces us to Agnes Flack and Sidney McMurdo, stalwart golf addicts. And Something Squishy (a snake in the bed), The Awful Gladness of the Mater (poor Dudley Finch!) and The Passing of Ambrose (two splendidly repulsive schoolboys) are about the heartless and delightful Bobbie, redhead daughter of novelist Lady Wickham, who is, of course, a Mulliner cousin.

‘Golf, as Sir Walter judiciously remarked, is unsuited to the novelist or indeed the writer of short stories. There is indeed one exception to this rule, Mr. P. G. Wodehouse with “The Clicking of Cuthbert” and other agreeable tales. Some approach works of genius, but then they are works of light-hearted genius.’ – Bernard Darwin.
