P.G.Wodehouse's best-loved creation by far is the master-servant team of Bertie Wooster, the likable nitwit, and Jeeves, his effortlessly superior valet and protector. This unlikely duo is as famous as Holmes and Watson, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, and Tracy and Hepburn, but they have their own very special inimitable charm. According to Walter Clemons, Newsweek, "They are at their best in The Code of the Woosters," in which Bertie is rescued from his bumbling escapades time and time again by that gentleman's gentleman: Jeeves.
P.G. Wodehouse published over ninety books in his seventy-year career. Born in in 1881 in Surrey, England, he came a U.S. citizen in 1955. He died at the age of 93 in 1975.
"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." --Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
“Bertie and Jeeves are at their best in The Code of the Woosters.” --Newsweek
