Endorsements & Reviews

“Wodehouse is the funniest writer—that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun—that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced.” — The New Yorker

“A brilliantly funny writer—perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced.” — The Times [London]

“There are eleven tales in this book and each is the best.” — The Observer

“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

“You should read Wodehouse when you’re well, and when you’re poorly; when you’re travelling, and when you’re not; when you’re feeling clever, and when you’re feeling utterly dim. Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already.” — Lynne Truss

“You don’t analyze such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendor.” — Stephen Fry

“The works of Wodehouse continue on their unique way, unmarked by the passage of time.” — Kingsley Amis
