4 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"In 'A Few Quick Ones' P.G. Wodehouse brings together some of his oldest friends for a party. Jeeves is there, of course, ministering as ever to Bertie Wooster's creature comforts. So is Mr Mulliner, and the Oldest Member, straight from his seat overlooking the ninth green from which he is accustomed to dispense advice on any subject from topped tee-shots to the wooing and winning of scratch lady-golfers by men of twenty-four handicap. And, of course, the Drones are there in force. Freddie Wigeon turns up with an idea for turning a quick penny by means of a 'Fat Uncles' sweepstake; Oofy Prosser, of the bulging bank account is there and Bingo Little whose tottering finances have plunged him into the soup many times in the past and will continue to do so."--Editor's review
