Young Men in Spats, by P.G. Wodehouse

The young men of the title are all members of the aptly named Drones Club, that refuge for the exquisitely well-dressed young man with nothing on his mind but the perfect top hat (from Bodmin's, of course). There's nothing serious here, but quite a bit to laugh at: this book is the proper home of my favorite Wodehouse story, "Uncle Fred Flits By", as well as of the fiendishly plotted "Goodbye to All Cats", along with nine other gems. Buy it, read it, chortle.
