Huge fun for new or Wodehouse seasoned readers
on 28 February 2000
Steven Fry's touching introduction to this excellent collection is worth the price alone. As seasoned readers will agree gategorising or even explaining Wodehouse is impossible. All I can say is that like for many of the very best things in life, I almost envy those who have never experienced Wodehouse for the pleasure they have ahead. I am a relatively old hand, so for me his writing is like womb music - no matter how bad things get I can always take pleasure and relaxation from the writing, the charm and the great good humour of these innocent stories. They penetrate the human condition in a way that simply makes me feel better.
If you have not read Wodehouse before you may as well start here and save money and time by buying the hardback - you will need to replace soft backs at least once every couple of years.
