Book Excerpt: 
. . .Asher's my name. B. Henderson Asher. I write 'Moments of Mirth.'"

A look almost of excitement came into Psmith's face, such a look as a visitor to a foreign land might wear when confronted with some great national monument. That he should be privileged to look upon the author of "Moments of Mirth" in the flesh, face to face, was almost too much.

"Comrade Asher," he said reverently, "may I shake your hand?"

The other extended his hand with some suspicion.

"Your 'Moments of Mirth,'" said Psmith, shaking it, "have frequently reconciled me to the toothache."

He reseated himself.

"Gentlemen," he said, "this is a painful case. The circumstances, as you will readily admit when you have heard all, are peculiar. You have asked me where Mr. Wilberfloss is. I do not know."

"You don't know!" exclaimed Mr. Waterman.

The cry goes round Cambridge: "It's the Gangs of New York by Wodehouse!"
""I fear that you have allowed constant communication with the conscienceless commercialism of this worldly city to undermine your moral sense. It is useless to dangle rich bribes before our eyes. Cosy Moments cannot be muzzled.

This is Wodehouse's third Psmith book, published in the US in 1912 and the UK in 1915, and thus Wodehouse's 18th published novel. However, it was written in 1909, after his very first visit to America, which lasted from April 25th to May 20th 1904, and allowed him a glimpse of New York street gangs

Not a great book!! This book has lesser humor quotient when compared with the other two in the series!! At times, i felt very miserable and blindly skipped few pages till i find a new chapter!! But Psmith, as always, a graceful character has enlighted the plot with his wit and charm!!

The narraation

I'm not one of those who automatically turn to Wodehouse for comfort reading. But I needed to finish some book, and Psmith, Journalist was the first one I came to which fitted these criteria:
- I would feel like I'd achieved something by reading it. (It's on the BBC 2019 "Novels that Shaped Our World

An ambitious crossover between Wodehouse's aristocratic humor and gangster literature that seems incongruous with Psmith's prior presentations. This could have been a standalone piece with a different character and it would have made more sense. Also many problematic characters.

Psuke Bariah did a very good narration of this 3rd book in the Psmith series. In this one, Psmith's friend Mike is on the fringes of the story; Mike's cricket team has come to the U.S. and Psmith has accompanied him but is at rather loose ends in New York City while Mike is away playing. He befr

Actually he doesn’t become a journalist in this book, but he does get involved with the running of a paper with the delightful name, Cozy Moments. Psmith (with a silent P) is not my favorite Wodehouse character, but he certainly isn’t the worst of them either. He has a certain elegance.

The story is

I'd start a paper just to get Psmith working on it.

Psmith, Journalist by P.G. Wodehouse, which was published in the book form in 1915, is the third book in a series featuring the adventures of ‘Psmith’, one of the best loved characters in the Wodehousian world. Following the true form of narration, plot and character development that is signature of

"Cosy Moments cannot be muzzled!" Could you dream up a more ridiculously, wonderfully assonant name for a muckraking paper than Cosy Moments? I'd give it five stars for being about journalism and doing away with the cricket, except dear Wodehouse replaces the pages and pages of wickets with pages an
