"To dive into a Wodehouse novel is to swim in some of the most elegantly turned phrases in the English language."-Ben SchottFollow the adventures of Bertie Wooster and his gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves, in this stunning new edition of one of the greatest comic novels in the English language. Steeple Bumphleigh is a very picturesque place. But for Bertie Wooster, it is a place to be avoided, containing not only the appalling Aunt Agatha but also her husband, the terrifying Lord Worplesdon. So when a certain amount of familial arm-twisting is applied, Bertie heads for the sticks in fear and trepidation despite the support of the irreplaceable Jeeves.
"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." - Lynne Truss "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." - Evelyn Waugh "The works of Wodehouse continue on their unique way, unmarked by the passage of time." - Kingsley Amis "A brilliantly funny writer-perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." - The Times [London] "Wodehouse is the funniest writer-that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun-that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced." - The New Yorker "You don't analyze such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendor." - Stephen Fry
