If Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge had a fiver for every dodgy scheme he had ever floated, he would be a very rich man indeed. In these ten stories he tries every way of making money, from writing political slogans to opening a college for dogs. In his own eyes, Ukridge is a great man and a visionary. In ours, he is English literature’s most delightful chancer and one of Wodehouse’s greatest comic creations: charming, ambitious, persuasive, optimistic, and almost always disastrous.
