I love Wodehouse's gentle humor. This book combines the sagas of Blandings castle with the Psmith saga. It gets no better than this.

Belonging to both the Psmith and the Blandigs Castle series doesn't make this an outstanding Wodehouse, but neither does it make a substandard one. ( )

Wodehouse, P. G. Leave it to Psmith. 1923. Psmith No. 4. Norton, 2012.
Rupert Psmith (his name is self-chosen and the initial letter P is silent) is an early and somewhat unusual Wodehouse hero in that he seems to be equally at home engaging in the hijinks at the Drones Club and lunching at the Conservative Club. We learn in an earlier story that he was expelled from Eton and exiled to a lesser school where he may have picked up socialist tendencies, but not enough of them to make him happy working at his uncle’s fish market. Now broke and unemployed, he finds himself in love with the young librarian at the madcap Blandings Castle. Although he is penniless, he has a natty suit and a sometimes-inscrutable gift of gab that give all the other characters trouble putting him in neat class pigeonholes. As ever, Wodehouse’s comic style is spot on. Consider this description: Phyllis Jackson “was small and fragile, with great brown eyes under a cloud of dark hair. She had a wistful look, and most people who knew her wanted to pet her.” There is a plot, but as is often the case in Wodehouse, it does not much matter. ( )

The plot and the characters are perhaps slightly better than the average Wodehouse, but the writing lacks the brilliant similes that I love.

> Lord Emsworth was so acutely spectacle-less; Rupert Baxter, his secretary, so pronouncedly spectacled. It was his spectacles that struck you first as you saw the man.

> Eve's eyes opened wide. "Do you mean to say you gave me somebody else's umbrella?" "I had unfortunately omitted to bring my own out with me this morning." "I never heard of such a thing!" "Merely practical Socialism. Other people are content to talk about the Redistribution of Property. I go out and do it."

> "Yes, owing to a financial upheaval in my branch of the family, I was until this morning at the beck and call of an uncle who unfortunately happens to be a Mackerel Monarch or a Sardine Sultan, or whatever these merchant princes are called who rule the fish market. He insisted on my going into the business to learn it from the bottom up, thinking, no doubt, that I would follow in his footsteps and eventually work my way to the position of a Whitebait Wizard. Alas! he was too sanguine. It was not to be,"

> "But, my dear fellow, I simply had to pop across the street." "Most decidedly," said Psmith. "Always pop across streets. It is the secret of a happy and successful life."

> "Goo!" said Freddie, and sat staring wildly. Nobody is more alive than we are to the fact that the dialogue of Frederick Threepwood, recorded above, is not bright. Nevertheless, those were his opening remarks

> She was the sort of woman who tells a man who is propping his eyes open with his fingers and endeavouring to correct a headache with strong tea, that she was up at six watching the dew fade off the grass, and didn't he think that those wisps of morning mist were the elves' bridal-veils.

> Reflect that I may be an acquired taste. You probably did not like olives the first time you tasted them. Now you probably do. Give me the same chance you would an olive. … Consider, also, how little you actually have against me. What, indeed, does it amount to, when you come to examine it narrowly? All you have against me is the fact that I am not Ralston McTodd. Think how comparatively few people are Ralston McTodd.

> Eve bit her lip. She was feeling, as Miss Peavey had so often felt when associated in some delicate undertaking with Edward Cootes, that exasperating sense of man's inadequacy which comes to high-spirited girls at moments such as these. … "Cynthia advised me," proceeded Eve, "if ever I married, to marry someone eccentric. She said it was such fun … Well, I don’t suppose I am ever likely to meet anyone more eccentric than you, am I?" "I think you would be unwise to wait on the chance."

> "Well, look here, between ourselves," said Freddie earnestly, "the whole trouble all along has been that she thought I hadn't any money to get married on. She didn't actually say so in so many words, but you know how it is with women – you can read between the lines, if you know what I mean. So now everything's going to be all right. I shall simply go to her and say, 'Well, what about it?' and – well, and so on, don't you know?" Psmith considered the point gravely. "I see your reasoning, Comrade Threepwood," ( )

At the open window of the great library of Blandings Castle, drooping like a wet sock, as was his habit when he had nothing to prop his spine against, the Earl of Emsworth, that amiable and boneheaded peer, stood gazing out over his domain.

"Other men love you. Freddie Threepwood loves you. Just add me to the list. That is all I ask. Muse on me from time to time. Reflect that I may be an acquired taste. You probably did not like olives the first time you tasted them. Now you probably do. Give me the same chance you would give an olive."
I'm as broke as the ten commandments!
