A Jeeves and Wooster novel
Thank You, Jeeves is the first novel to feature the incomparable valet Jeeves and his hapless charge Bertie Wooster - and you've hardly started to turn the pages when he resigns over Bertie's dedicated but somewhat untuneful playing of the banjo. In high dudgeon, Bertie disappears to the country as a guest of his chum Chuffy - only to find his peace shattered by the arrival of his ex-fiancée Pauline Stoker, her formidable father and the eminent loony-doctor Sir Roderick Glossop. When Chuffy falls in love with Pauline and Bertie seems to be caught in flagrante, a situation boils up which only Jeeves (whether employed or not) can simmer down...

PG Wodehouse was born on the 15th October 1881 in Guildford, Surrey, England. He was educated at Dulwich College between 1894 and 1900, and in 1900 he entered the employ of the Hong Kong & Shanghai bank at £80 per year. He began writing articles for various newspapers and periodicals.
In 1902 he resigned from the bank, and in the same year his first novel The Pothunters was published. 'Plum' then wrote many highly successful novels as well as musicals, and in 1929 he signed a contract to work as a screenwriter in Hollywood. After several years in Britain, he moved back to to the USA permanently.
In 1974 his last complete novel Aunts aren't Gentlemen was published, and in 1975 he was knighted by the Queen.
On the 14th Feb 1975 Plum died in hospital 'after a good morning's work on his latest novel'
"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" -- John Humphrys "For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" -- Marian Keyes "Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" -- Lynne Truss "The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" -- Kate Mosse "Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" -- Susan Hill
