"P. G. Wodehouse wrote the best English comic novels of the century." —Sebastian Faulks

Bertram Wooster’s interminable banjolele playing has driven Jeeves, his otherwise steadfast gentleman's gentleman, to give notice. The foppish aristocrat cannot survive for long without his Shakespeare-quoting and problem-solving valet, however, and after a narrowly escaped forced marriage, a cottage fire, and a great butter theft, the celebrated literary odd couple are happy to return to the way things were.

I had never read P.G. Wodehouse before but had of course heard of his writing. I was not disappointed, it was very entertaining.

Loved this book. Not really culturally correct but remember when this was written and where the setting is - England in the 20's. This is full of funny goofiness!!!! Highly recommended.
