“To dive into a Wodehouse novel is to swim in some of the most elegantly turned phrases in the English language.”―Ben Schott

Follow the adventures of Bertie Wooster and his gentleman’s gentleman, Jeeves, in this stunning new edition of one of the greatest comic short story collections in the English language. This classic collection of linked stories feature some of the funniest episodes in the life of Bertie Wooster, gentleman, and Jeeves, his gentleman’s gentleman―in which Bertie's terrifying Aunt Agatha stalks the pages, seeking whom she may devour, while Bertie’s friend Bingo Little falls in love with seven different girls in succession (he marries the last, bestselling romantic novelist Rosie M. Banks). And Bertie, with Jeeves’s help, just evades the clutches of the terrifying Honoria Glossop. At its heart is one of Wodehouse’s most delicious stories and a comic masterpiece, "The Great Sermon Handicap."

morning it seemed to me that what I really wanted was some charming girl to buzz up and ask me to save her from assassins or something. So that it was a bit of an anti-climax when I merely ran into young Bingo Little, looking perfectly foul in a crimson satin tie decorated with horseshoes. ‘Hallo, Bertie,’ said Bingo. ‘My God, man!’ I gargled. ‘The cravat! The gent’s neckwear! Why? For what reason?’ ‘Oh, the tie?’ He blushed. ‘I – er – I was given it.’ He seemed embarrassed, so I dropped the

authorities.’ ‘Well, why don’t the policemen in New York dress properly?’ George took a look at the chewing officer across the room. ‘I don’t see anything missing,’ he said. ‘I mean to say, why don’t they wear helmets like they do in London? Why do they look like postmen? It isn’t fair on a fellow. Makes it dashed confusing. I was simply standing on the pavement, looking at things, when a fellow who looked like a postman prodded me in the ribs with a club. I didn’t see why I should have

that she was exactly bad-looking. In fact, if she had knocked off starchy foods and done Swedish exercises for a bit, she might have been quite tolerable. But there was too much of her. Billowy curves. Well-nourished, perhaps, expresses it best. And, while she may have had a heart of gold, the thing you noticed about her first was that she had a tooth of gold. I know that young Bingo, when in form, could fall in love with practically anything of the other sex; but this time I couldn’t see any

That scheme of yours – reading those books to old Mr Little and all that – has blown out a fuse.’ ‘They did not soften him?’ ‘They did. That’s the whole bally trouble.

Which dock?’ I saw that he wasn’t quite on. ‘I was speaking metaphorically,’ I explained, ‘if that’s the word I want. I mean he got married.’ ‘Married!’ ‘Absolutely hitched up. I hope you aren’t ratty about it, what? Young blood, you know. Two loving hearts, and all that.’ He panted in a rather overwrought way. ‘I am greatly disturbed by your news. I – I consider that I have been
