9780099558149: Weekend Wodehouse

"P.G. Wodehouse remains the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness, that no one else has ever captured quite so sharply, or with quite as much wit and affection." --Julian Fellowes

Weekend Wodehouse -- required reading at country house parties in the late Thirties -- remains one of the best introductions to the work of PG Wodehouse. All the favourites are here: Drones Club stories, Mr Mullinger stories, stories of Jeeves, Lord Amsworth and Ukridge.

About the Author:

P. G. WODEHOUSE was born in Guildford, Surrey, in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After working for the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank for two years, he left to earn his living as a journalist and story-writer. He wrote over ninety books and his work has won worldwide acclaim. He was hailed by The Times as 'a comic genius recognised in his lifetime as a classic and an old master of farce.' P.G. Wodehouse said: 'I believe there are two ways of writing novels. One is mine, making a sort of musical comedy without music and ignoring real life altogether; the other is going right deep down into life and not caring a damn.'

In 1975 he was created a Knight of the British Empire and he died on Valentine's Day in the same year at the age of ninety-three.

Review:

"The greatest comic writer ever." --Douglas Adams

"Mr. Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in." --Evelyn Waugh

"You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour." --Stephen Fry
