Overview

Jeeves, the inscrutable gentleman's gentleman who steers his befuddled employer Bertie Wooster through countless scrapes, is P.G. Wodehouse's wittiest and most enduring character.

On this brilliantly played recording, Jeeves is portrayed by Roger Livesey while Terry-Thomas plays Bertie. Supported by an excellent cast, these actors render two vintage stories: Jeeves Takes Charge, in which Jeeves helps Bertie avoid marriage to a forbiddingly high-brow woman, and Indian Summer of an Uncle, a tale that finds Jeeves performing a similar service for Bertie's uncle, who must be rescued from the clutches of a silly young girl.

Wodehouse's sparkling prose is meant to be read out loud, and this fine recording brings his sardonic humor to life as it conjures up a world of tea-trays, formidable aunts, rich uncles, romantic spinsters, and understated satire as British as tweed,² according to The Patriot Leader.
