About the Author:

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (P. G. Wodehouse) was an English humorist and writer best known for his Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels. Educated at boarding schools, Wodehouse turned to writing at a young age, demonstrating great skill at humorous sketches and musical lyrics. He continued to write part-time while pursuing, at the behest of his father, a career in banking, and successfully contributed numerous pieces to Punch, Vanity Fair, and The Daily Express, among other publications. In addition to his literary work, Wodehouse was incorporated into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in recognition of his collaboration with Cole Porter on Anything Goes, his lyrics to the song Bill from Show Boat, and his work on the musicals Rosalie and The Three Musketeers.

While interned along with other British citizens in Germany during the Second World War, Wodehouse made a series of radio broadcasts for which he was accused of being a collaborator; and, although later cleared of the charges, he never returned to England. His work has influenced many other writers including Evelyn Waugh, Rudyard Kipling, J. K. Rowling, and John Le Carr?. P. G. Wodehouse died in 1975 at the age of 93.

Review:

“To open almost any of Wodehouse’s books is to open a door into endless summer.”
- Michael Dirda, The Wall Street Journal

Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own.


- Evelyn Waugh

“Handsome, affordable hardcover editions . . . Wodehouse is an anodyne to annoyances. He’s a tonic for those suffering from bearable but burdensome loads of boredom, from jadedness of outlook and dinginess of soul.”
- The New Yorker

“Could a P. G. Wodehouse revival be more timely? Overlook Press, which is reissuing Wodehouse’s comic novels, clearly has its finger on America’s pulse. . . . With its sumptuously bound editions, Overlook Press has done the master proud.”
- Los Angeles Times

“Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor―bubblingly witty and dryly loony. And as Overlook continues its reissue of these absurd souffles, you can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose.”
- Entertainment Weekly

“The volumes of the Collector’s Wodehouse are fine indeed. . . . I am hard-pressed to think of a recent publishing project as ambitious and successful as this one.”
- The Washington Post
