The World of Jeeves - , Preview:

A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus 'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight. As he wrote: 'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world. Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward. On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was: "Mrs Gregson to see you, sir." The second: "Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?" It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me. I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'..

Jeeves and the Wedding Bells - Sebastian Faulks Preview:

'Brings the peerless Jeeves and Wooster barrelling back to life' Daily Mail A gloriously witty novel from Sebastian Faulks using P.G. Wodehouse’s much-loved characters, Jeeves and Wooster, fully authorised by the Wodehouse estate. Bertie Wooster is staying at the stately home of Sir Henry Hackwood in Dorset. He is more than familiar with the country-house set-up: he is a veteran of the cocktail hour and, thanks to Jeeves, his gentleman’s personal gentleman, is never less than immaculately dressed. On this occasion, however, it is Jeeves who is to be seen in the drawing room while Bertie finds himself below stairs – which he doesn’t care for at all. His predicament is, of course, all in the name of love ... ‘A masterpiece ... a pitch-perfect undertaking’ Spectator ‘Entirely delightful’ Financial Times ‘Delightfully witty, packed with puns’ Sunday Mirror ‘A polished sparkling genuine fake’ Herald.

Right Ho, Jeeves - P.G. Wodehouse Preview:

When Bertie Wooster, a blundering, but well-meaning bachelor, returns home to London after spending time in the Canes with his aunt and cousin, he discovers that his valet, Jeeves, has been advising an old friend on love. Gussie, Bertie’s school friend, is head-over-heels in love with a young, whimsical lady named Madeline. Unsure what to do with his crush, Gussie turned to Jeeves in Bertie’s absence, happy with the help he received. Bertie, however, becomes annoyed and jealous, paranoid that his friends may think that Jeeves is smarter than him. In an effort to prove himself superior, Bertie orders Jeeves not to offer any more advice. Instead, Bertie invites Gussie to a prestigious event at Brinkley Court to make a speech. Though Bertie was originally told by his aunt that he was expected to make the speech, Bertie was nervous to do so, and decided that it would be best for Gussie to do it. Then, Gussie could use the opportunity to win over Madeline, who would be at the event. However, Bertie’s plan quickly becomes derailed after an effort to probe Madeline about her feelings results in a mistaken declaration of love. When Madeline declines what she assumed was Bertie’s marriage proposal, she claims to have feelings for Gussie. Feeling that his goal was well on its way of being accomplished, Bertie spikes Gussie’s drink in attempt to give his friend the courage to propose to Madeline. However, when Bertie’s tactic makes Gussie a little too bold, the night unfolds into pure chaos, and Bertie must swallow his pride and ask for help. Right ho, Jeeves is P.G Wodehouse’s second novel featuring his famous characters, Bertie and Jeeves. Though its predecessor, Thank You, Jeeves was published prior to the novel. Right ho, Jeeves is able to be enjoyed independently. >Right ho, Jeeves is a narrative packed with humorous misunderstandings, well-intended mistakes, and pure hilarity. This edition of Right ho, Jeeves by P.G Wodehouse is now presented in an easy-to-read font and features an eye-catching cover design to accommodate modern readers..

A Jeeves and Wooster novel Thank You, Jeeves is the first novel to feature the incomparable valet Jeeves and his hapless charge Bertie Wooster - and you've hardly started to turn the pages when he resigns over Bertie's dedicated but somewhat untuneful playing of the banjo. In high dudgeon, Bertie disappears to the country as a guest of his chum Chuffy - only to find his peace shattered by the arrival of his ex-fiancée Pauline Stoker, her formidable father and the eminent loony-doctor Sir Roderick Glossop. When Chuffy falls in love with Pauline and Bertie seems to be caught in flagrante, a situation boils up which only Jeeves (whether employed or not) can simmer down...A display of sustained comic brilliance, this novel shows Wodehouse rising to the top of his game..

Lurking in the wings is Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe of Matchingham Hall, the neighbour with designs on the Prize which must surely belong to the Empress. As Evelyn Waugh wrote, 'The gardens of Blandings Castle are that original garden from which we are all exiled.' This omnibus contains Something Fresh, Summer Lightning and three short stories..

P.G. Wodehouse and Hollywood - Brian Taves Preview:

Beloved British humorist P.G. Wodehouse produced a wealth of literature in his lengthy career, contributing novels, short stories, plays, lyrics and essays to the canon of comic writing. His work in film and television included two stints as a screenwriter in Hollywood in the 1930s, and his stories have been the basis for more than 150 film and television productions. He also wrote 20 stories and essays about Hollywood, satirizing the city and its entertainment magnates. This book studies P.G. Wodehouse’s extensive, but often overlooked relationship with Tinsel Town. The book is arranged chronologically, covering Wodehouse’s Hollywood career from his early efforts in silent film, to his later contributions in television, to his work adapted posthumously for the screen. Radio is covered as well, including a discussion of his internment in occupied France and his brief appearances on German radio. Reflecting Wodehouse’s international appeal, the book covers Wodehouse films and television in England, Germany, Sweden, and India. Also included are a comprehensive, detailed list of Wodehouse’s stories and articles about Hollywood, and a complete filmography of motion picture and television works to which he contributed or which were based on his stories..
