Review:

"To have one of his books in your hand is to possess by way of a pill that 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)

"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists. His world is perfect, his writing is perfect. What more is there to be said?" (Susan Hill)

"P. G. Wodehouse is the gold standard of English wit." (Christopher Hitchens)

"An incomparable and timeless genius." (Kate Mosse)

"P. G. Wodehouse should be prescribed to treat depression. Cheaper, more effective than valium and far, far more addictive." (Olivia Williams)
