P.G. Wodehouse: Psmith in the City

The beginning is a bit flat, as if the author was only warming up or even still learning his trade, but soon it turns into typical good old PGW novel. The only minor drawback was that reading, in my then state of mind, about the companionship of two young men sometimes reminded me slightly painfully of my own advanced age and loneliness.

Quotation:

If one looks closely into those actions which are apparently due to sudden impulse, one generally finds that the sudden impulse was merely the last of a long series of events which led up to the action. Alone, it would not have been powerful enough to effect anything. But, coming after the way has been paved for it, it is irresistible.
(Chapter 25)
