“Sublime comic genius”—Ben Elton

These eleven stories describe the misadventures of the delightfully idle “Eggs,” “Beans,” and “Crumpets” that populate the Drones club: young men wearing spats, starting spats, and landing in sticky spots. For the first of his many appearances in the Wodehouse canon, Uncle Fred comes to what he believes to be the rescue.
