9780091636104: Weekend Wodehouse

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HILAIRE BELLOC

'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.

Review:

"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)

"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)

"He is the head of my profession... If in, say, fifty years, Jeeves and any other of that great company shall have faded, then what we have so long called England will no longer be" (Hilaire Belloc)

"A peerless collection" (Max Hastings Sunday Times)

Book Description:
