Jonathan Cecil doesn't sound as young Psmith might, but rather like the aging, humorous and sly narrator who seems to lie behind every P.G. Wodehouse novel, no matter at what stage of the master's career it was written. This one was early, and the humor is more refrained than in, for example, the later Jeeves and Bertie masterpieces. Psmith ambles through employment at a bank (as Wodehouse himself did as a young man), helping his friend Mike out of one difficulty after another. Cecil is one of Wodehouse's better readers, handling both women and men with British aplomb. D.R.W. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 00]
