Overview

A tome of well-mannered high comedy, from the "unrivaled master of the comedy of manners" (Entertainment Weekly)
In Aunts Aren't Gentlemen Bertie Wooster withdraws to the village of Maiden Eggesford on doctor's orders to "sleep the sleep of the just and lead the quiet Martini-less life." Only the presence of the irrepressible Aunt Dahlia shatters the rustic peace. A classic-the last book written by Woodhouse featuring Bertie and Jeeves. With each volume edited and reset and printed on Scottish cream-wove, acid-free paper, sewn and bound in cloth, Aunts Aren't Gentlemen and the rest of the Wodehouse novels published by the Overlook Press are elegant additions to any Wodehouse fan's library.
