9780099820307: Louder and Funnier

The Wodehouse collection continues with more sparkling classics from the master of hijinks and social comedy

P. G. Wodehouse is recognized as the greatest English comic writers of the twentieth century, rightly admired throughout the world and translated into more than thirty languages. Launched on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, this series presents each Overlook Wodehouse as the finest edition of the master’s work ever published―beautifully designed and faithful to the original. 

This season, Overlook is pleased to offer the latest two hilarious volumes. Louder and Funnier is a collection of articles written for Vanity Fair, with subjects ranging from Shakespeare and divorce to income tax and ocean liners. The Prince and Betty is an engrossing, hilarious story of an unscrupulous millionaire and his plans to build a casino in the Mediterranean. Revised by Wodehouse after the initial publication, it features the master’s signature reflections on the rich in one of his classic novels.

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.

Review:

To open almost any of Wodehouse’s books is to open a door into endless summer.


- Michael Dirda, The Wall Street Journal

“Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own.”
- Evelyn Waugh

“Handsome, affordable hardcover editions . . . Wodehouse is an anodyne to annoyances. He’s a tonic for those suffering from bearable but burdensome loads of boredom, from jadedness of outlook and dinginess of soul.”
- The New Yorker

“Could a P. G. Wodehouse revival be more timely? Overlook Press, which is reissuing Wodehouse’s comic novels, clearly has its finger on America’s pulse. . . . With its sumptuously bound editions, Overlook Press has done the master proud.”
- Los Angeles Times

“Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor―bubblingly witty and dryly loony. And as Overlook continues its reissue of these absurd souffles, you can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose.”
- Entertainment Weekly

“The volumes of the Collector’s Wodehouse are fine indeed. . . . I am hard-pressed to think of a recent publishing project as ambitious and successful as this one.”
- The Washington Post
