About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, lyrics, and essays, all with the same light touch of gentle satire. He is best known as the creator of the bumbling Bertie Wooster and his all-knowing valet, Jeeves.

Reviews

Since his manservant Jeeves is off on vacation, Bertie Wooster accepts an invitation to his Aunt Dahlia's country house, with its rolling acres and superb chef. Unfortunately, he was only invited to shadow an important guest; then he reads the notice of his own engagement to a girl he had believed safely betrothed to his friend Kipper Herring. Yes, things are much as usual in Wodehouse's imaginary, early 20th-century upper-class England. Plenty of servants, imposters, and misunderstandings, a few thefts, and everything comes right in the end. The plots may be inane, but Wodehouse's writing is, as always, clever, amusing, and stylish. Jeeves, normally at the center of any Wooster title, plays a relatively minor role here. His place is admirably filled by the great physiologist Sir Roderick Gossop, masquerading as the butler. Reader Ian Carmichael is well known for his portrayals of upper-class young men; he does a superb job of voicing the male characters, but his female voices are a bit problematic. Still, this charming book is recommended for all audiobook collections.-I. Pour-El, Des Moines Area Community Coll., Boone, IA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Christopher Buckley author of Little Green Men It is impossible to be unhappy while reading the adventures of Jeeves and Wooster. And I've tried.
Kurt Andersen author of Turn of the Century Wodehouse can be extremely funny, of course, and Bertie and Jeeves are echt-Englishmen, but the surprising and surpassing pleasure of these books is their cheerful humanity. Reading Wodehouse always makes me feel good.
David Foster Wallace author of Brief Interviews with Hideous Men Timelessly funny and mean.
