Penn's Village Reads:

"The Clicking of Cuthbert" by P.G. Wodehouse

Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. 

Brian Wengenroth will read “The Clicking of Cuthbert,” from P.G. Wodehouse’s collection of ten short stories by the same name, all with a golfing theme. This, the first story in the collection, introduces the Oldest Member, an elderly sage who appears in most of Wodehouse’s many golf stories and narrates from the clubhouse off the 18th green of an unnamed golf club somewhere in England.  Wodehouse was one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century, using a mixture of Edwardian slang, quotations from and allusions to numerous poets, and several literary techniques to produce a prose style that has been compared to comic poetry and musical comedy.
