Part of the Jeeves & Wooster series

Paperback / softback

Description

A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight.

As he wrote:'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world.

Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward.

On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was:"Mrs Gregson to see you, sir."The second:"Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?" It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me.

I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.
