The ubiquitous butler, Jeeves, comes to the rescue of his new master, Bertie Wooster, from a fate worse than death, so they say. And in the second tale, poor Bertie is summarily dispatched to New York, by an overbearing aunt, to extract his cousin from an amorous affair with a vaudeville artiste! How absolutely dreadful! Jeeves managing of affairs offers such wonderful amusing stories that make us laugh and enjoy his ingenuity to the fullest.

P.G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, (1881 1975) was a British novelist, short story writer, journalist, playwright, poet and lyracist, immensely popular for his sense of humor and mastery of language.

Best known for his Jeeves series, Wodehouse created the most resourceful and competent servant in literature, the word Jeeves itself has become part of the vernacular. Wodehouse also had great success as a musical theater lyricist, making contributions to Show Boat and Anything Goes.

Born in England to a noble family, Wodehouse's writings reflected his background, a truly humourous perspective on the upper class. During a stay in Manhattan, Wodehouse met his wife and settled in New York, with a brief adventure in Hollywood to write screenplays. Living into his nineties, Wodehouse enjoyed the fruits of his labor and acclaim worldwide, a happy, funny man.

    " P.G. Wodehouse wrote like a fiend, and his particular specialty was soft, intelligent, wry humour. Whenever I read Wodehouse's work, I find myself smiling and smiling -- always makes me feel good. Gentle stories in a language that is beautifully wrought. "

    " What's not to love about the Jeeves books? They are light and amusing and leave just enough room for doubt to wonder "Is Jeeves really a sadist?" "

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.
