"he sort of book that should be tackled from the comfort of a deep leather armchair in front of the fire at the Drones Club"

The best selections are his descriptions of boxing and the later stories about golf. Well, ostensibly they’re about golf, but mostly they’re an excuse for a familiar Wodehouse theme: boy meets girl; boy turns out to be an utter goof but good-hearted if you like that sort of thing; boy pulls off unexpected feat of courage or sportsmanship; boy is immediately embraced by girl; friends order sets of fish knives from the wedding list.
