Jeeves and Bertie’s debut

Thomas Ashton’s edition of early Jeeves and Wooster stories includes a “bonus” story, first published in The Saturday Evening Post in New York in 1915.  Ashton says “Extricating Young Gussie” marks the first appearance of Bertie and Jeeves in print.  It certainly can be considered a “prequel” to My Man Jeeves as the story explains what Bertie is doing in New York and why he’s delaying his return to Aunt Agatha.  As such it’s a fun (and short) read in conjunction with our other stories.
