9780099522249: The Wit & Wisdom of P.G. Wodehouse

A wonderful collection of short Wodehouse extracts combining the wit and wisdom of the master.

Tony Ring, the President of the Wodehouse Association, and author of the 600,000-word Millennium Wodehouse Concordance, has drawn on his extensive knowledge and even more wonderful enthusiasm to compile an absolutely cracking anthology of the Master’s wit and wisdom — all compacted into one-hundred and twenty-eight pithy pages.

Here are not only witty epigrams we all know and love (and perhaps many we don’t!) but also longer humourous extracts that are full of wisdom.

About the Author:

Tony Ring is former editor of Wooster Sauce. He has written an eight-part Concordance of Wodehouse’s fiction, together with You Simply Hit Them with an Axe, a study of Wodehouse’s relationship with the taxman. He is co-author of P.G. Wodehouse In His Own Words (2001).

Review:

"A jolly collection of wit and one-liners from one of our best-loved humorists" Daily Express "This anthology is a feast of humour" The Oldie "The finest and funniest writer the past century ever knew" -- Stephen Fry "Sublime comic genius" -- Ben Elton "The funniest writer ever to put words to paper" -- Hugh Laurie
