The feather-brained Bertie Wooster complicates his life by interceding with the predatory Madeline Bassett on behalf of his friend Gussie Fink-When Jeeves's employer plays matchmaker, terrifying misunderstandings ensue, until the indomitable Jeeves saves the day. No wonder the British lost the war with the American colonies.
The feather-brained Bertie Wooster complicates his life by interceding with the predatory Madeline Bassett on behalf of his friend Gussie Fink-Nottle and finds himself entangled in terrifying misunderstandings. In the mounting storm clouds on the Wooster horizon there is but one ray of comfort: the presence of Jeeves, steadfast and reassuring. No cause has ever been lost while Jeeves was around, and in this uproarious novel the mastermind rises effortlessly to the occasion.
"It is impossible to be unhappy while reading the adventures of Jeeves and Wooster. And I've tried."--Christopher Buckley, author of "Little Green Men"
"Wodehouse can be extremely funny, of course, and Bertie and Jeeves are echt-Englishmen, but the surprising and surpassing pleasure of these books is their cheerful humanity. Reading Wodehouse always makes me feel good."—Kurt Andersen, author of "Turn of the Century"
"Timelessly funny and mean."—David Foster Wallace, author of "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men"
"Mr. Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in."—Evelyn Waugh
