Part of the Jeeves & Wooster series

Description

'The prose . . . is so gloriously funny you can relish the book over and over again.' The Times (five best British comic novels)'If you haven't read PG Wodehouse in a hot bath with a snifter of whiskey and ideally a rubber duck for company, you haven't lived [...] A book that's a sheer joy to read.' Independent (40 books to read before you die)'To dive into a Wodehouse novel is to swim in some of the most elegantly turned phrases in the English language.' Ben SchottNumber 15 in 100 Greatest Books of All Time list in Daily Telegraph'There are moments, Jeeves, when one asks oneself, "Do trousers matter?"''The mood will pass, sir.'Aunt Dahlia has tasked Bertie with purloining an antique cow creamer from Totleigh Towers.

In order to do so, Jeeves hatches a scheme whereby Bertie must charm the droopy and altogether unappealing Madeline and face the wrath of would-be dictator Roderick Spode.

Though the prospect fills him with dread, when duty calls, Bertie will answer, for Aunt Dahlia will not be denied. In a plot that swiftly becomes rife with mishaps, it is Jeeves who must extract his master from trouble.

Again. 'To have one of his books in your hand is to possess, by way of a pill, that which can relieve anxiety, rageiness, or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour.

Paper has rarely been put to better use than printing Wodehouse.' Caitlin Moran
