About the Author:

P. G. Wodehouse (1881–1975) spent much of his life in Southampton, New York, but was born in England and educated in Surrey. He became an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books and twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.

From AudioFile:

Once again Jonathan Cecil shows why he's the perfect choice to narrate P. G. Wodehouse's works. Cecil understands that the humor in these 10 stories comes not just from the pithy observations about British society, but also from their pace, tone, and interplay of dialect. Cecil's narration shifts for each character, sometimes in mid-word, as when one character interrupts himself, or is shocked by the actions of another. These stories bring back many classic characters, such as Jeeves and Oofy Prosser, for more fun, and Cecil manages to sound both straight-faced and tongue-in-cheek at the same time, a crucial factor in reading this collection appropriately.
