Leave It to Psmith

Once again P.G. Wodehouse constructs an elaborate narrative of the absurdities and shenanigans of the aristocracy, the gentry, and the idle rich as they typically get embroiled in another of his infectious tales. This time it is the adventurous, industrious, and slightly ingenious entrepreneur Ronald Smith who decides to hire out his services to whoever might need them, whatever those needs might be and whatever his services might be. Adding the P to his name for flair (“the P is silent”) adds much needed intrigue to his bland name and it is not long before he finds himself in the thick of it at Blandings Castle.
