Meet Mr. Mulliner

Meet Mr. Mulliner by P.G. Wodehouse

The first collection of Mr. Mulliner tales. Who, despite the reputation of fishermen for dishonesty, will assure that many fishermen are honest. He, for instance, is a fisherman and would never lie.

Which is why you can believe the tale of his uncle who won a bride because of the San Francisco earthquake, or his nephew who was cured of a stutter by being chased by a pitchfork wielding mob, and all the rest. I think "The Romance of a Bulb-Squeezer" was weak, but not the rest.
