Oh Mr. Wodehouse! One of the finest witty wordsmiths who ever picked up a pen. When I need a smile, or a lift, or even a roll on the floor laugh I turn to one of the many wonderful works of Wodehouse.
6 wonderful short stories!
So many to choose from, and each one is from a different period in PG Plum to his friends - life. While my favorite character is Psmith, how can I not enjoy the mutterings of Ukridge, or long to have my life saved from disasters by the likes of Jeeves.
Stephen Fry wrote Without Wodehouse I am not sure I would be a tenth of what I am today...his writings awoke me to the possibilities of language. His rhythms, tropes, tricks and mannerisms are deep within me. But more than that, he taught me something about good nature. It IS enough to be benign, to be gentle, to be funny, to be kind.
As laughter is the best medicine, perhaps we need a good dose of Wodehouse from time to time, and during these bleak winter months, in the dark time of the economy, Wodehouse is just what the Doctor ordered!
As far as our house is concerned, PG Wodehouse this is the best comic authors ever. Its understandable that Stephen Fry, Douglass Adams, and Hugh Laurie all praise him. In each of his books he brings a smile, a laugh, or even a giggle out loud. This was British comedy before Python, (and while different, the use of wit, satire, etc, makes Wodehouse a master). I used to read this book in university, pretending to listen to some lecture. These great literary treasures need to be discovered again by a new generation. Pass this book to someone who has never heard of Jeeves, Wooster, Psmith, Ukridge, Blandings, or Sally.
Our hero Roland Bleke is a chivalrous and polite young man who more often than not finds himself talked into things against his better judgment. He also finds himself regularly falling for pretty girls, usually totally unsuitable to a man of his quiet and simple temperament, at first sight. Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever.
Make any day better with a enthusiastic portion of Wodehouses light-hearted legendary fun. Enjoy!
Basically its a simple and easy choice for you, if you like one Wodehouse story youre going to like them all.
In these economically bleak times its good to invest in a book that will bring happiness to all who read it. Enjoy the hilarious works of Wodehouse - perhaps just what you need!
