Early short stories of Wodehouse. All follow the familiar patterns of the later works, but without quite the polish or the consistency . Wodehouse went to school at Dulwich College, where he did well at cricket. At first he worked hard at his studies, but when he discovered that there would not be enough money to send him to university, his attention drifted. After leaving school, he worked briefly at the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank in London. He had begun writing at the age of seven and so began contributing to numerous papers and magazines. Wodehouse had published his first book by 1902.

There were three distinct stages in the evolution of Annette Brougham's attitude towards the knocking in the room above. In the beginning it had been merely a vague discomfort. It distressed Annette to such an extent that now, if she went upstairs and heard Sellers' voice in the studio, she came down again without knocking. One afternoon, sitting in her room, she heard the telephone-bell ring. The telephone was on the stairs, just outside her door. She went out and took up the receiver.
For fans PG Wodehouse’s The Man upstairs and Other Stories is a prime chance to read early Wodehouse. For the non-fan these are very slight, light reads, humorous, occasionally laugh out loud short entertainments. Like all Wodehouse books these are fastidiously non-offensive, lacking anything impolite, irreligious or political. This is not to advocate them as bed time reading for the very young, the reader should have some knowledge of the world to grasp the humor. References can be dated.
