The double-act of Bertie Wooster and his faithful, omniscient butler Jeeves is the greatest comic pairing in literature. Millions of fans worldwide have laughed at the travails of bumbling Bertie and delighted at the felicitous solutions devised by Jeeves to extricate his master from the soup'. Penguin first published Wodehouse in 1936, a year after Penguin was founded, and this volume offers two of the comic master's most-loved stories: 'Jeeves and the Impending Doom' and 'Jeeves and the Song of Songs'. In these two stories Bertie Wooster finds himself on a losing streak and lands himself at the mercy of his aunts, Dahlia and Agatha, and only Jeeves is capable of extricating him from disaster.

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was born in Guildford, 1881, and educated at Dulwich University. After a brief period working for Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, Wodehouse commenced writing and subsequently produced about a hundred books, co-authored fifteen straight plays and wrote 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies. Jeeves, the ever resourceful 'gentleman's personal gentleman' and the good hearted young blunderer Bertie Wooster, are two of his best known creations. Wodehouse died in 1975, having been made a Knight of the British Empire earlier that year. To this day Wodehouse has one of the largest backlists in Penguin.
