About the Author:

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE (15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Born in Guildford, the son of a British magistrate based in Hong Kong, Wodehouse spent happy teenage years at Dulwich College, to which he remained devoted all his life. After leaving school he was employed by a bank but disliked the work and turned to writing in his spare time. His early novels were mostly school stories, but he later switched to comic fiction, creating several regular characters who became familiar to the public over the years. They include the feather-brained Bertie Wooster and his sagacious valet, Jeeves; the immaculate and loquacious Psmith; Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set; the Oldest Member, with stories about golf; and Mr Mulliner, with tall tales on subjects ranging from bibulous bishops to megalomaniac movie moguls.

From AudioFile:

Boswell and Johnson, Watson and Holmes . . . Wooster and Jeeves? Yes, another inseparable duo, this one linked by bonds of need and comedy. Here, we find the ever cool and capable gentleman's gentleman Jeeves pulling the hapless Bertie Wooster's fat from the fire time and again in classic style. A motley clutch of buffoons accompanies Jeeves's accounts of Wooster's misunderstandings, gaffes, and backfiring plans. This enjoyable set is performed flawlessly and with great verisimilitude by Broadway's Jeeves, Martin Jarvis.
