These four latest installments in Overlook's "Collector's Wodehouse" series offers a taste of Jeeves and samplings of other comedies. Though Wodehouse editions abound, this series, based on the original British texts, offers small, hardcovers with sewn bindings and acid-free paper for an affordable price. Real beauties.

Wodehouse is the funniest writerthat is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of funthat the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced.
A brilliantly funny writerperhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced.
Sublime comic genius.
You should read Wodehouse when you’re well, and when you’re poorly; when you’re travelling, and when you’re not; when you’re feeling clever, and when you’re feeling utterly dim. Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already.
You don’t analyze such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendor.
Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.
The works of Wodehouse continue on their unique way, unmarked by the passage of time.
There are eleven tales in this book and each is the best.
