What’s up next? Just Enough Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

Just Enough JeevesIf you are looking for a fun read, check out some of P.G. Wodehouse’s highbrow comic fiction. I am reading Just Enough Jeeves, which is a collection of three of Wodehouse’s novels, Joy in the Morning (1947), Very Good, Jeeves (1930) and Right Ho, Jeeves (1933). Wodehouse was a prolific writer and published over 90 books, 20 film scripts, 40 plays and 200 short stories. His stories, described by Robert McCrum in the book’s introduction, are “a happy escape into a lost world of upper-class frivolity.”

Two of Wodehouse’s best-known characters are the bumbling Bertie Wooster and his ever-wise manservant, Jeeves, who is always at the ready to rescue Bertie from a wide variety of social disasters. These stories make me laugh out loud and are just right for summertime reading.

P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) was a very successful English writer whose career spanned decades. His life, however, was not always easy nor without controversy. Check back soon for a post about Wodehouse and his life.
