Right Ho, Jeeves
(Jeeves & Wooster)101
_________________________________________ 'If comedy is your thing, it's hard to match PG Wodehouse and his classic characters Jeeves and Bertie Wooster for hilarious farce.' Irish Daily Mail 'P.G. Wodehouse wrote the best English comic novels of the century' Sebastian Faulks 'Heaven is Right Ho, Jeeves' Hugh Johnson 'Jeeves, I'm engaged.' 'I hope you will be very happy, sir.' 'Don't be an ass. I'm engaged to Miss Bassett.' Bertie is feeling most put out when he finds that his friend Gussie is seeking relationship advice from Jeeves. Meanwhile Aunt Dahlia has asked Bertie to present awards at a school prize-giving ceremony. In a stroke of genius, Bertie realises he can kill two birds with one stone, palming off his prize-giving duties to Gussie by assuring him that the object of his affections will be there. Several terrible misunderstandings later and facing chaos, Bertie turns, yet again, to Jeeves who swiftly and ingeniously saves the day. _________________________________________ 'Sublime comic genius' Ben Elton 'A cavalcade of perfect joy' Caitlin Moran 'Sunlit perfection... Bask in its warmth and splendour' Stephen Fry 'The greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness' Julian Fellowes

'Heaven is Right Ho, Jeevesor almost any PG Wodehouse novel when he's writing about Jeeves and Wooster or the barmy inhabitants of Blandings Castle, or young love on the golf course ...His best writing has a nimble precision and a range of references greater than anyone since Shakespeare. He can cheer me out of a grey mood. -- Hugh Johnson * Daily Mail * To have one of his books in your hand is to possess by way of a pill that can relieve anxiety, rageiness, or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour. Paper has rarely been put to better use than printing Wodehouse. -- Caitlin Moran Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists. His world is perfect, his writing is perfect. What more is there to be said? -- Susan Hill P. G. Wodehouse is the gold standard of English wit. -- Christopher Hitchens An incomparable and timeless genius. -- Kate Mosse
Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (always known as 'Plum') wrote about seventy novels and some three hundred short stories over seventy-three years. He is widely recognised as the greatest 20th-century writer of humour in the English language. Perhaps best known for the escapades of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, Wodehouse also created the world of Blandings Castle, home to Lord Emsworth and his cherished pig, the Empress of Blandings. His stories include gems concerning the irrepressible and disreputable Ukridge; Psmith, the elegant socialist; the ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred; and those related by Mr Mulliner, the charming raconteur of The Angler's Rest, and the Oldest Member at the Golf Club. In 1936 he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for 'having made an outstanding and lasting contribution to the happiness of the world'. He was made a Doctor of Letters by Oxford University in 1939 and in 1975, aged ninety-three, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. He died shortly afterwards, on St Valentine's Day.
