This is a Jeeves and Wooster collection. These marvellous stories introduce us to Jeeves, whose first ever duty is to cure Bertie's raging hangover ('If you would drink this, sir...it is a little preparation of my own invention. It is the Worcester Sauce that gives it its colour. The raw egg makes it nutritious. The red pepper gives it its bite. Gentlemen have told me they have found it extremely invigorating after a late evening.') And from that moment, one of the funniest, sharpest and most touching partnerships in English literature never looks back...

Book Review: Carry on, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse - Reviewed by Romi Foster (28 Nov 2011)
A collection of short stories featuring Jeeves and Bertie; it contains the very first story, where Jeeves comes into it all and many other's that are full of laughable moments like all the best books! I loved everything about this book, from the size of the stories, the characters, the situations Bertie manages to get himself lodged into and which Jeeves always helps him get safely out of. I watched all the TV serieses with Fry and Laurie before venturing into the series of books, and had high expectations; they were forfulled ten fold and I can't wait to read more Jeeves and Wooster books!

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway.
