Description - Carry on, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse
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!
Author Biography - P. G. Wodehouse
Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (always known as 'Plum') wrote more than ninety novels and some three hundred short stories over 73 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 93, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. He died shortly afterwards, on St Valentine's Day.
