'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

It is a wonderfully happy book. * Guardian * This light-hearted romp is delightfully witty, packed with puns and boasts a few phrases that Wodehouse himself would have deemed top-hole. Splendid stuff. * Sunday Mirror * The finished product resembles, in all but cover, a traditional Wodehousian yarn. Harking back to the summer of 1926, it is a gentle, jolly tale - of farce and mistaken identity, of love lost and found, of cricket matches, village fetes and the eccentric upper classes. * Telegraph * At two memorable moments in Jeeves and the Wedding Bells I did indeed laugh until I cried... Jeeves and the Wedding Bells is a masterpiece... This is a pitch-perfect undertaking: proof, almost a century after his debut, that Jeeves may not be so inimitable after all. * Spectator * The plot is satisfyingly convoluted in the best Wodehouse tradition . . . A genuine addition to my growing Wodehouse collection and there is no higher tribute. * Daily Express * He catches the Wodehousean idiom, periphrasis, surreal similes and bally silliness to a T, all done with love. Please commission a dozen more, Hutchinson. * Literary Review * From the first page of Sebastian Faulks's entirely delightful book . . . we are transported to Wodehouse land. All the details, of plot, of character, and of setting, are lovingly drawn. The hours spent reading Jeeves and the Wedding Bells are pure pleasure. * Financial Times * Faulks has caught the mood and the dialogue perfectly * Sunday Express *
