Présentation de l'éditeur

The Oldest Member's reverence for golf does not cramp his style in telling some of the funniest, tallest and most joyful stories in the whole Wodehouse canon. In this splendid omnibus, introduced by Wodehouse himself, love and the links are inextricably intertwined, in this bumper collection of hilarious short stories that show the course of true love is racing down the middle of the fairway. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Biographie de l'auteur

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway.

At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

Si les texte de P.G. Wodehouse sont intraduisibles, et illisibles pour qui n'a pas une certaine maîtrise de l'anglais, il demeure un auteur magnifique, qui écrit d'une façon réaliste, avec un humour tout simplement remarquable. Dans "The Golf Omnibus", Wodehouse se moque de lui-même mais également de son sport préféré, tout en racontant des fables modernes que l'on peut relire de nombreuses fois avec plaisir...

Should be used in writing courses. 3 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Wodehouse loved the game, and it shows in his writing. While golfers with a sense of tradition will appreciate many of the sometimes-obscure references, one need not be a golfer to appreciate the elegance of these short stories. The Egnlish language is beautifully used here. I take this down every few years and read the stories as if for the first time. If these don't make you laugh, you've got a serious problem

Please Play Through--I Can't Put This Book Down 4 septembre 2003
Par Gord Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As someone who's idea of a good day at golf is riding around in the cart with beer and nachos, I wondered if this particular PGW collection would hold my interest. But the golf stories rank among his very best, even for someone who doesn't know a bogie from a birdie. "The Coming of Gowf," "The Purification of Rodney Spelvin," and most others in this volume fall in the stack I read over and over. Ranging more widely, I find this applies to every sport Plum takes a pen to, from Rugger to Cricket. Another subject he has a sixth sense for is animals. I avoided for a long time the PGW Bestiary, but if the stories of Geofrey the cat (sp.?) or Ukridge and the dogs, or the cats re: Claude and Eustace's initiation, or for that matter, the ubiquitous broken-down steeds that broke gents with sporting blood are always putting a spot on--if these were the only stories Wodehouse ever wrote, those fortunate enough to find them would still be devouring the full repertoire. Fortunately, there seems to be a PGW renaissance, with everything being reprinted (such as this omnibus). So now my "best stories list" runs: Jeeves, Drones, Mulliner, animals, golf, but the list reads just as well from the bottom up.

I hate golf. I love this. 5 mars 2004
Par blurglecruncheon - Publié sur Amazon.com

Great literature is supposed to bring you an appreciation of something you hadn't considered before. Wodehouse's golf stories did it for me like few others. None are terribly subtle--most are told by the Oldest Member, who on the first half-page collars a helpless younger golfer and tells him a story that turns out to be worth staying for. The narration is slightly sarcastic, and there are only two types of stories at heart: guy and girl made for each other get married because of golf, or guy uses golf to avoid girl unfit for him. There's always a subplot of a bad golfer breaking 100 or two longtime rivals in an 18 hole match, but nothing seems to get reused.
Despite using upper-crust characters in his stories, Wodehouse's work exhibits only a fake pretension. Plus there are cool names and recurring characters such as the golf champ Sandy McHoots. It's a bit more comprehensible than some Yoknapathawpa nonsense. A love triangle through three stories features a poet who(gasp) recites his poetry while people focus loses a golferess to a golfer, almost regains her, and then tries to learn golf courting her sister. Nobody is evil, although some people deserve--and get--a good comic socking.
But what makes Wodehouse appealing is how his characters are comically obsessed with golf. I have better things to be obsessed with, but I was able to connect with this and recognize how Wodehouse laughs at them. After I stopped laughing.
I've never read a collection of stories more insightful, easy to follow and enjoyable.

The best writing on golf 16 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a lover of golf and a professional writer, I recommend this book to anyone, especially those who love the game.
Forget that every plot is identical. Wodehouse's genius is in his phrasing, his irony and his outrageousness. He is a master of caricature and timing.
Wait for that day of rain or snow, curl up by the window and lose yourself in the dreamy fantasy world of golf. You will simply laugh out loud.

Wow - This guy is a very concise and accurate writer. I was literally laughing as I read it and for several days afterward.
It is a solid read with much punch to it.
