Tales of St Austin's: Adventures at An English Public School
 
P. G. Wodehouse (Author) 
Dr. Craig Paterson (General Series Editor) 
Wodehouse's Tales of St Austin's is a collection of short stories and essays, all written with an English public school theme. Remembering his own school days at Dulwich, Wodehouse wrote these stories while he was working as a junior clerk for The Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank in London. The collection was first published in 1903 by Adam & Charles Black, London. Nearly all the stories previously appeared in two popular schoolboy magazines of the time: The Captain and Public School Magazine. The stories are set in the fictional public school of St. Austin's. These are "Boy's Own" style adventure stories featuring cricket escapades, rugby trials and tribulations, the excitment of petty gambling and getting one over on the masters!

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English satirist, author and comic novelist who created the famous fictional characters of Bertie Wooster and Reginald Jeeves.
