The Jeeves Omnibus: (Jeeves & Wooster): Volume 2
|Series:||Jeeves & Wooster|
Jeeves may not always see eye to eye with Bertie on ties and fancy waistcoats, but he can always be relied on to whisk his young master spotlessly out of the soup (even if, for tactical reasons, he did drop him in it in the first place).
The paragon of Gentlemen's Personal Gentlemen shimmers through these fat pages in much the same way as he did through the first Jeeves Omnibus. This volume contains one brilliant collection of short stories and two hilarious novels: Right Ho, Jeeves, Joy in the Morning and Carry On, Jeeves.
"The greatest comic writer ever" --Douglas Adams
"The funniest writer ever to put words to paper" -- Hugh Laurie
"P.G. Wodehouse wrote the best English comic novels of the century" --Sebastian Faulks
"Sublime comic genius" --Ben Elton
'You don't analyse such sunlit perfection: you just bask in its warmth and splendour' --Stephen Fry
The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.
