Meet the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE (15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was a comic writer who enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of more than seventy years and continues to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of pre-war English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career.

An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by modern writers such as Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie, Zadie Smith and Terry Pratchett. Sean O'Casey famously called him "English literature's performing flea", a description that Wodehouse used as the title of a collection of his letters to a friend, Bill Townend.

Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of 15 plays and of 250 lyrics for some 30 musical comedies. He worked with Cole Porter on the musical Anything Goes (1934) and frequently collaborated with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton. He wrote the lyrics for the hit song "Bill" in Kern's Show Boat (1927), wrote lyrics to Sigmund Romberg's music for the Gershwin - Romberg musical Rosalie (1928), and collaborated with Rudolf Friml on a musical version of The Three Musketeers (1928).

    Beware of bed books

    Another great work by Wodehouse,but that goes without saying.My reason for this review is to make you aware of "Bed Books".The pages of these books are printed sideways so that the book can be read more easily if you are lying down.It seems to be more of an incovenience than anything else.I purchased this book because of it's good price.If I had known what a "bed book" was, I would have selected a different book.

    Hysterical

    This is the first book of Jeeves stories ever published. P.G. Wodehouse is a classic British humorist (dead now, of course) who pokes fun at the idle rich and their culture, as well as setting up hysterical scenarios in which silly men have problems with women and/or money and seek help from friend Bertie Wooster's butler Jeeves. The results are inevitably hilarious. If you love humor, it - or another of the Bertie & Jeeves story books - is a must-read.

    Lucky us ...

    So glad to see this wonderful Overlook Press series. Good paper, nicely produced, good to add to my library of mostly classics.

    Wodehouse is a master; Bertie is surely at the top of the list of quintessential and lovable English characters. I read these stories in the 50s and 60s, and now can enjoy them again. They never grow old.

    You see, children, once upon a time humour was subtle ....
