This stand-alone novel is another fine example of the wonderful, zany humor of P. G. Wodehouse.

Imperious American widow Beatrice Chavender is visiting her sister’s country home near London when a most unfortunate thing happens: she takes a bite of inferior ham while having her breakfast. Soon everyone around her is suffering the consequences—her sister, her brother-in-law, the butler, poor Sally, Sally’s fiancé, and even Mrs. Chavender’s ex-fiancé, “Ham King” J. B. Duff.

Don’t miss this wild romp from the acknowledged master of British humor.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    Evelyn Waugh, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor—bubblingly witty and dryly loony.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Quick Service is in the great tradition of the Wodehouse lunatic lightness of wit and mood…Pure, 14-carat Wodehouse…Throughly and decidedly up to the sterling Wodehousian standard…Once more Mr. Wodehouse shows his miraculous ability to send dialogue spinning down the page.”

    New York Times, 1940

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.
