The Man with Two Left Feet

The Man With Two Left Feet, and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on March 8 1917 by Methuen & Co., London, and in the United States in 1933 by A.L. Burt and Co., New York. Most of the stories had previously appeared in periodicals, generally the Strand in the UK and the Saturday Evening Post in the U.S.

It is a fairly miscellaneous collection - most of the stories concern relationships, sports and household pets, and do not feature any of Wodehouse's regular characters; one however, "Extricating Young Gussie", is remarkable as the first appearance of some of Wodehouse's most well-known and beloved characters, Jeeves and his master Bertie Wooster (although here Bertie's surname appears to be Mannering-Phipps, and Jeeves' role is very small), along with Bertie's fearsome Aunt Agatha.

Contents

In the U.S. version of the book, "Wilton's Holiday", "Crowned Heads" and the two-part "The Mixer" were omitted, and replaced with three other stories, "Absent Treatment", "Rallying Round Old George" and "Doing Clarence a Bit of Good", which all feature Reggie Pepper and had all appeared in the UK in My Man Jeeves (1919).
