'Wodehouse is a tonic' - New Yorker. A Wodehouse pick-me-up that'll lift your spirits, whatever your mood.'Cheaper and more effective than Valium'.*Offers 'relief from anxiety, raginess or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour'.*'Read when you're well and when you're poorly; when you're travelling, and when you're not; when you're feeling clever, and when you're feeling utterly dim.'*Whatever your mood, P. G. Wodehouse, widely acknowledged to be 'the best English comic novelist of the century'*, is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Why? Because 'Mr Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.'*How? 'You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.'**Olivia Williams *Caitlin Moran *Lynne Truss *Sebastian Faulks *Evelyn Waugh *Stephen FryThis collection contains two of the best Jeeves stories, in which the gentleman's gentleman endeavours to smooth over Bertie Wooster's relentless haplessness. Add in the story of a private detective who can make the guilty confess simply by smiling at them, told by one of Wodehouse's greatest raconteurs, and you've got an assortment of Wodehouse delights in which lunacy and comic exuberance reign supreme.Contents-- The Smile that Wins- Jeeves and the Song of Songs- The Great Sermon Handicap

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.
