Superlatively witty and outrageously funny

If you haven't experienced the perennial delights of Jeeves and Wooster then this is an excellent place to start. Bertie Wooster (an "Abysmal Chump" in the words of his formidable Aunt Dahlia) is forever getting himself into a fix and, despite his own confidence, only Jeeves can come up with a solution.
In this collection we revisit Bingo Little and his romance-writing wife, Tuppy and his ferocius father Sir Roderick Glossop who thinks an asylum is the only appropriate place for Bertie, the irrepresible Bobbie Wickham, and Bertie's sweet Uncle George who wants to marry the waitress from the bun-shop...
Wodehouse's language is sublime, his plotting immaculate, and his ability to reveal the absurd and ridiculous untouched. I love all the Jeeves & Wooster stories which bear constant re-reading - highly recommended.
