Very Good, Jeeves

Very Good, Jeeves

(Jeeves & Wooster)

Summary

A Jeeves and Wooster collection

An outstanding collection of Jeeves stories, every one a winner, in which Jeeves endeavours to give satisfaction: By saving a grumpy cabinet minister from being marooned and attacked by a swan - in the process saving Bertie Wooster from his impending doom...By rescuing Bingo Little and Tuppy Glossop from the soup (twice each)...By arranging rather too many performances of the song 'Sonny Boy' to a not very appreciative audience...And by a variety of other sparkling stratagems that should reduce you to helpless laughter. This early collection shows P.G.Wodehouse at the top of his game, writing with sublime wit and delicacy of plotting.

‘Ever since I picked up my dad’s copy of Very Good, Jeeves aged 11 I’ve adored PG Wodehouse.’ Anna Carey’s favourite funny book for Irish Times
