Promotional Information

A classic Jeeves and Wooster novel from P.G. Wodehouse, the great comic writer of the 20th century.

About the Author

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (always known as 'Plum') wrote about seventy novels and some three hundred short stories over seventy-three years. He is widely recognised as the greatest 20th-century writer of humour in the English language.Perhaps best known for the escapades of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, Wodehouse also created the world of Blandings Castle, home to Lord Emsworth and his cherished pig, the Empress of Blandings. His stories include gems concerning the irrepressible and disreputable Ukridge; Psmith, the elegant socialist; the ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred; and those related by Mr Mulliner, the charming raconteur of The Angler's Rest, and the Oldest Member at the Golf Club.In 1936 he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for 'having made an outstanding and lasting contribution to the happiness of the world'. He was made a Doctor of Letters by Oxford University in 1939 and in 1975, aged ninety-three, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. He died shortly afterwards, on St Valentine's Day.

Reviews

The prose . . . is so gloriously funny you can relish the book over and over again. * The Times *
Quite possibly the funniest book the master of comedy ever wrote. * i paper (feel good books) *
A sheer joy to read. * Yahoo: 40 best books to read before you die *
'Anything by PG Wodehouse' was a common response when asking around for people's comfort reads. It's very hard to pick just one, but this - with Roderick Spode, Aunt Dahlia and plenty of sneering at cow creamers - is fairly close to perfection. -- Books to get through lockdown * Spectator *
It's illegal to put together any list of the funniest books in English without including Wodehouse. [His] incredibly delicate descriptive touch (for example, of a particularly burly character: "as if Nature had intended to make a gorilla, and had changed its mind at the last moment") and sense of timing elevate a country house farce involving a policeman's hat, a cow-creamer and a would-be British fascist leader into something which glows with an effortless, sunny brilliance. * Esquire *
