The adventures of Psmith. The "P" is silent, as in "psalmon". Psmith antedates Jeeves and Bertie in order of whatthingummy, having been the subject of one of Wodehouse's earliest stories in The Captain (magazine where his earliest stories appeared—please pay attention) the other characters of which seem not to have survived for a sequel. And Psmith in the City, though not Plum's first novel, was the one that is said to have established his reputation as the funniest man going. Psmith first appeared in the second part of Mike, which part has been published separately as Enter Psmith and Mike and Psmith. There are basically only four Psmith stories; it only looks as if there were a lot more of them.
About Psmith's Christian name there is confusion. This office has been led to believe that in Psmith's schoolboy days, he rejoiced in the name of "Rupert". In Leave It to Psmith, however, he is Ronald Eustace, which we cannot help but consider a marked improvement in nomenclature.
