The World of Mr. Mulliner

The World of Mr. Mulliner by P.G. Wodehouse

The omnibus of all the Mr. Mulliner stories. Including all those in Meet Mr. Mulliner, Mr. Mulliner Speaking, and Mulliner Nights, plus some collected elsewhere.

Mr. Mulliner assures us that there are fishermen who are honest. Such as himself. And thus frames stories about premises that were too absurd for his regular madcap comedies. (And this works better at short length.)

Besides the collected stories, there's a bunch about an insane Hollywood, a question of fires, giving a moving sermon, and more.
