More About the Author

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 including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. 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.

Format:Paperback
Three superb (are there any other kind?) Jeeves & Wooster books all in one volume... sheer bliss. None of these stories disappoint, and come highly recommended. A minor note of warning, though- whilst all three of these stories can be read with no prior knowledge of Wodehouse, they do contain fairly extensive spoilers for earlier books. So before reading "Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves", read both "Right Ho, Jeeves" and "The Code of the Woosters", and be sure to read "Joy in the Morning" before "Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit". This isn't really a flaw, though, because those three represent Wodehouse at his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wodehouse the master! 18 Nov 2006
Format:Paperback
Whenever I pick up this book, within a few pages of reading I am actually laughing out loud. Some sentences stick in my mind and make me laugh just by remembering them the next day! Such a wonderful world to escape to after a hard day. They should prescribe this book instead of Prozac.

Another collection of Wodehouse to add to the bookshelf - still the master after all these years, and thanks to Michael Hordern and Richard Briers, the images of these two stalwarts springs easily to mind as one reads. Super!!

Lovely to get these so compactly presented. Wodehouse is still one of the funniest writers ever. I had forgotten how good he can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Joy 20 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
5 stars just isn't enough - but, then, 10 stars wouldn't be enough either! To have three Jeeves and Wooster books combined, so that you can effortlessly finish one and move seamlessly on to the next, is fantastic. There never has been a writer to equal P. G. Wodehouse for humour. Each book starts with a basic plot or problem, but then Wodehouse weaves his many tricks, so that each time the reader thinks the problem has been resolved, another twist pops up. And in the end, only Jeeves can sort things out. You know he will do it, but that doesn't matter in the slightest, because the language is so exquisite that each book can be enjoyed just for that. Wonderful writing, the best use of words since Shakespeare, an age that has long gone (and may never have been quite like this anyway, so he his is a world of its own, and a wonderful one) - how can you possibly ask for more? Fabulous.
