P. G. Wodehouse

Very Good, Jeeves

An outstanding collection of Jeeves stories, every one a winner, in which Jeeves endeavours to give satisfaction: By saving a grumpy cabinet minister from being marooned and attacked by a swan — in the process saving Bertie Wooster from his impending doom…

By rescuing Bingo Little and Tuppy Glossop from the soup (twice each)…

By arranging rather too many performances of the song ‘Sonny Boy’ to a not very appreciative audience…

And by a variety of other sparkling stratagems that should reduce you to helpless laughter.

    👍Worth reading

    A portal to Eden. Not to be rushed. Poetry references will reward the inquisitive.

    Jeeves sizzling with his superb abilities at the disposal of team Wooster and Bertie ; 'in the pink'.

    The twin peaks of Edwardian civilization in topping form.
