The Times has announced, much to Bertie’s astonishment, the news of his engagement to the beautiful Bobbie Wickham. But worse is yet to come… Uncle Tom’s antique silver cow-creamer has gone missing. Kipper Herring has learned his and Bertie’s former headmaster, leading British psychiatrist Sir Roderick Glossop, is posing as a butler, and Aunt Dahlia’s masterly French chef is in trouble. By a rare stroke of genius, Bertie finds a solution to all these problems, which is to recall Jeeves from his annual holiday. The incomparable manservant sorts everybody out in his usual imperturbable style.

This title is also known as Jeeves in the Offing.

Quotes & Awards

  • “P.G. Wodehouse’s famed butler, Jeeves, makes only a brief appearance in this novel, returning from vacation to pull employer Bertie Wooster out of a jam related to news of Wooster’s engagement to the beautiful redhead, Bobbie Wickham. It’s news to Wooster, who spots the notice in the newspaper. Ian Carmichael, who played Wooster on screen, gives the protagonist an especially befuddled tone, and his female voices are often tougher than the male ones, a seemingly purposeful choice to reflect their hardheadedness. These techniques are too exaggerated for my taste, but the writing, as usual in Wodehouse tales, is a delight to the ear.”

    " Read by Simon Callow. Poor Bertie, this time it really wasn't his fault, he was actually the only - relatively - sane person around yet he still ended up labeled as a lunatic in the general sense and a kleptomaniac too! And who can he thank for that? Jeeves! Sometimes I think Bertie's nothing but a bottomless well of amusement for Jeeves, the poor chap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 2/7/2014

    " A hilarious novel. I laughed many times, and I'm not apt to do such a thing while reading. I love Wodehouse's dialogue and cannot wait to read more of his books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 2/4/2014

    " I always enjoy P.G. Wodehouse and stories about Bertie Wooster and Jeeves. Sadly, Jeeves is missing from most of this book and I sorely missed him. The book still has amusing antics and the thread of meanness that makes these books so cutting, but this one wasn't quite as amusing as others that I've read. I also don't think this book is the best introduction to these characters--it's better if you have some prior knowledge from reading some of the other stories even though the actual plot is stand-alone. Recommended for folks looking to read more Jeeves stories but not to those who are reading their first one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rishara | 1/26/2014

    " Clever. Sometimes clever is enough, but not this time, apparently. I think I was wanting something more substantial than simply clever. I'd never read Wodehouse before and I can see why people like him, so I'll have to try again sometime when I am in a different mood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/24/2014

    " I have listened to several of these Bertie Wooster books on cd and they never fail to make me smile. Bertie's manservant, Jeeves, always seems to save the day AND get in the last word without making Bertie lose face. A unique pair of characters! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teri Pre | 1/20/2014

    " Not as good as "Right ho, Jeeves" but a fun read anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/6/2014

    " pure pleasure. and he makes it look so damn easy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 12/19/2013

    " I can do no better than Evelyn Waugh: "Mr. Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 11/16/2013

    " This was a fast paced somewhat farcical book with interesting British vocabulary and upper crust melodrama. I doubt I'd read more in the series of Jeeves books, but pick one and check out the strange attitudes servant to master and the terminology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phair | 10/26/2013

    " Almost always adore Wodehouse but this was not the funniest of the Jeeves series. The reader on this one, Ian Carmichael, does not come up to my favorite reader, Jonanthan Cecil for bringing the characters to comic life. Still- a decent listen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 10/17/2013

    " Blake tried to tell me I would love Wodehouse. He is right! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Wilson | 10/17/2013

    " A lot of fun. Wodehouse continues to be a source of very enjoyable light reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Billy | 7/23/2013

    " Perhaps I've gotten so used to Wooster & Jeeves being laugh-out-loud hilarious that I'm being unduly harsh in my evaluation on this goofy, but not very funny installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johanna | 7/12/2013

    " Frothy, frivolous, fun. "

    " I listened to this one on tape. Typical Wodehouse (if Wodehouse is ever typical) =) "

    " I'd give this 10 stars if I could. I love P.G. Wodehouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Kizer | 7/4/2011

    " Anything by Wodehouse is surprising, clever, dry, witty...and British. When I read Wodehouse I think of Waugh and when I read Waugh I think of Wodehouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 4/5/2011

    " I can listen to these stories over and over. Nothing is wrong in the world as long as Jeeves is taking charge of Bertie Wooster. This one is particularly good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 4/5/2011

    " Meh. Not one of his best efforts, but I did enjoy all the redheaded Jezebel comments. "

    " If you want to smile like an imbecile for an indeterminate amount of time, read any of the Jeeves & Wooster novels. Precisely! (This book is also sold under the title How Right You Are, Jeeves.) "

    " I'm sure, by listening to this rather than reading it, I missed loads of word play, but it was still clever and fun (but not enough to make me read more). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Prasanna | 2/25/2011

    " My second Wodehouse. Finished it in one day. Starting to love Wooster and Jeeves and Co. A great find and highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete | 11/23/2010

    " wonderful. several laugh-out-loud parts so you might want to confine your reading to a secluded setting lest you startle others. "

    " Seemed like Wodehouse was trying a bit too hard with this one? Criminal lack of Jeeves action, too - he only turns up about two-thirds of the way through. "

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
