June 2012 Guest Editor Joanne Harris on The Inimitable Jeeves...

One of my perennial comfort reads. After all these years in print, still as surprisingly witty and fresh as a Noel Coward musical.

 

The Lovereading view...

A collection of stories about Wodehouse's terrifically funny Jeeves and Wooster. A marvellous introduction if you have never read any and a joyous reminder if it has been some time since you escaped in to their world.

The Inimitable Jeeves Synopsis

A Jeeves and Wooster collection. A classic collection of stories featuring some of the funniest episodes in the life of Bertie Wooster, gentleman, and Jeeves, his gentleman's gentleman - in which Bertie's terrifying Aunt Agatha stalks the pages, seeking whom she may devour, while Bertie's friend Bingo Little falls in love with seven different girls in succession (including the bestselling romantic novelist Rosie M. Banks). And Bertie, with Jeeves's help, hopes to evade the clutches of the terrifying Honoria Glossop...At its heart is one of Wodehouse's most delicious stories, 'The Great Sermon Handicap.'

 

January 2010 Guest Editor Diana Gabaldon on P. G.  WODEHOUSE

One of the most popular humorists ever. Pelham Grenville Wodehouse taught me how much sheer amusement you can derive from the English language—and the art of constructing a plot that works so seamlessly that it doesn't matter how absurd it is.    And no one who's ever had the pleasure of meeting Bertie Wooster and his gentleman's personal gentleman, Jeeves—let alone his bevy of friends and nemeses (Gussie Fink-Nottle and his Aunt Agatha, to mention only two)—will ever forget them.
