Golf Without Tears [Published in the U.K. as The Clicking of Cuthbert]
by Wodehouse, P.G. [Pelham Grenville]
ix, 330 pp. 8vo. Golf and love—the two primal obsessions.P. G. Wodehouse displays his most uproarious storytelling and never-ending jollity in these tales of lovers on the links.—Cuthbert Banks, champion golfer, wins the heart of his beloved Adeline, who won't give him the time of day until a visiting Russian author ignores everyone to fawn over Cuthbert's golfing prowess.—One man loses his fiance when he discovers golf late in life (on the eve of his wedding) and just can't stop thinking about it.—One golfing woman attempts to kill (with her niblick) her golfing husband who just won't stop talking during the game (he survives, cured of his garrulity).—One golf fanatic discovers, to his horror, that he has married a croquet player; their union is nearly sundered, until she takes up the ancient and royal game and matches his handicap.—Two men play a single hole sixteen miles long, requiring over eleven-hundred strokes, in a grudge match over the love of one woman.Other loves stand and fall by the vagaries of that infuriating tiny white ball. The end result is a collection of sublimely funny stories, dear to all golfers, and those who love them. First American edition. Hinges starting, evidence of previous repair to spine, ink name & date on front flyleaf. New York: George H. Doran Company, 1924. First Edition. Collectible; Good/No Jacket. (Inventory #: 2195725)
