Description - Much Obliged, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse
A Jeeves and Wooster novel It is a time of stress at Market Snodsbury as Bertie must protect himself from the affections of Madeline Bassett. 'The prospect of being linked for life to a girl who would come down at breakfast and put her hands over my eyes and say "Guess who" had given my morale a sickening wallop. It is always my policy in times of crisis to try to look on the bright side, but I make one proviso - viz. that there has to be a bright side to look on, and in the present case there wasn't even the sniff of one.'

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.
