CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, Feb 25, 2009 - 58 pages
Six wonderful Wodehouse stories that all star Roland Bleke, a young man for whom financial success is always a mixed blessing. At first a poor clerk, he wins a small fortune in a sweepstake, and from then on his every step seems to bring him further wealth. He is, at various times, a stockholder in a booming gold mine, the proprietor of a theatre, owner of a magazine, and the financier of a plot to organize a revolution in a small South American country.Our hero Roland Bleke is a chivalrous and polite young man who more often than not finds himself talked into things against his better judgment. He also finds himself regularly falling for pretty girls, usually totally unsuitable to a man of his quiet and simple temperament, at first sight.Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever. -- Douglas AdamsMr. Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. -- Evelyn Waugh
