Jeeves is infallible. Jeeves is indispensable. Unfortunately, in How Right You Are, Jeeves, he is also in absentia.

About the Author
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, lyrics, and essays, all with the same light touch of gentle satire. He is best known as the creator of the bumbling Bertie Wooster and his all-knowing valet, Jeeves.


Praise For How Right You Are, Jeeves

Christopher Buckley
author of Little Green Men

It is impossible to be unhappy while reading the adventures of Jeeves and Wooster. And I've tried.


Kurt Andersen
author of Turn of the Century

Wodehouse can be extremely funny, of course, and Bertie and Jeeves are echt-Englishmen, but the surprising and surpassing pleasure of these books is their cheerful humanity. Reading Wodehouse always makes me feel good.


David Foster Wallace
author of Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

Timelessly funny and mean.


Evelyn Waugh


Mr. 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.
