Corky’s flat is invaded by an unknown woman whose stripling in tow is bent on seeing the sights of London – the murderey ones. P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

We’re going to continue with the adventures of Ukridge. Wodehouse uses this character elsewhere, but I think that this collection of stories from Corky’s point of view, and seeing Ukridge as the well-meaning antagonist is quite effective.

The first few stories in this series are available in the podcast feed. You can hear them if you scroll back to episodes 748, to 751, back in September of 2021.

And now, The Return of Battling Billson, by P.G. Wodehouse.
