A Jeeves and Wooster novel Trapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably have given way at the knees. For among those present were Florence Craye, to whom Bertie had once been engaged ... and her new fiance 'Stilton' Cheesewright, who regarded Bertie as a snake in the grass ... also Zenobia Hopwood and her guardian Lord Worplesdon, whose violent antipathy to 'Boko' Fittleworth amounted to obsession ... and that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout, doing acts of kindness out of sheer malevolence. All Bertie's forebodings were fully justified. For in his efforts to oil the wheels of commerce, promote the course of true love and avoid the consequences of a vendetta, he became the prey of all and sundry. Complete disaster might well have followed, but for the genius of Jeeves who extricated the young master with a ploy as smoothly executed as it was brilliantly conceived.

About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

Reviews

"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" -- John Humphrys "For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" -- Marian Keyes "Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" -- Lynne Truss "The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" -- Kate Mosse "Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" -- Susan Hill

Joy in the Morning was first published in 1947 and is right up there with such titles as The Code of the Woosters as the best of Wodehouse. The story's narrator, the foppish Bertie Wooster, finds himself trapped in the countryside in close proximity to his dreaded Aunt Agatha. The story features another loopy novellist (Boko Fittleworth), an irascible Lord and of course the superlative Jeeves.
