First US edition, published five weeks after its UK counterpart. The second Uncle Fred novel.

Uncle Dynamite was the first book Wodehouse had published in the United States following his split from Doubleday:

'He blamed the move on 'the Doubleday organisation', which, he felt, was a 'huge factory' that did not care about his books. ... In England, Uncle Dynamite sold as well as Spring Fever, but in America, despite Didier's efforts, sales were not enhanced...' (McCrum)
