Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.” (Evelyn Waugh)

“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.” (Kurt Andersen, author of Turn of the Century)

“It is impossible to be unhappy while reading the adventures of Jeeves and Wooster. And I've tried.” (Christopher Buckley, author of Little Green Men)

Format: Paperback
P.G. Wodehouse wrote funny stories. Obscenely hilarious comedy stories about dim young aristocrats, overbearing aunts and very clever servants.

And of all his creations, the most memorable is the ill-fated and blue-blooded Bertie Wooster and his megabrained valet Jeeves. "Just Enough Jeeves: Right Ho, Jeeves; Joy in the Morning; Very Good, Jeeves" brings together three solid collections of Wodehouse's hilarious stories, ranging from short stories to full-out novels.

In "Right Ho Jeeves," Bertie travels to his Aunt Dahlia's home of Brinkley Court, which is currently awash in troubles -- Gussie Fink-Nottle is trying to nerve himself up to speak to Madeleine Basset, his cousin Angela has dumped Tuppy Glossup, and Aunt Dahlia is trying to get five hundred pounds from Uncle Tom. Add in an enraged French chef, a hunger act, and a drunken prize-giving.

Then "Joy in the Morning" is anything but joyful -- poor Bertie ends up stranded in the countryside with his bossy ex-fiancee Florence Craye. Even worse, he has to deal with her crabby father, obnoxious brother, and her new fiance: Stilton Cheesewright, an aggressive fathead who would love to rearrange Bertie's body parts. Mayhem ensues.

And "Very Good, Jeeves" brings together a cluster of Jeeves short stories. Among the problems here: Bertie's uncle decides to marry someone "unsuitable," Tuppy's love life causes crises, a health food nut, Bertie's hideous Aunt Agatha, his attempts at singing, and Jeeves always managing to iron out romantic disasters before they get too horrible.

The world of P.G. Wodehouse is always light, fluffy, and hilarious, with massive romantic tangles that usually center in some way around Bertie.

Format: Paperback
If you have never read anything by P.G. Wodehouse, this book is an excellent place to start. It contains two novels and a collection of short stories, all featuring Bertie Wooster and his omniscient manservant, Jeeves. The stories collected here span most of Wodehouse's career, from among the first Jeeves stories to the last.

One drawback to reading an anthology like this is that it is much like watching a "House" marathon on television. The plotlines are all the same. In House's case, the first 15 minutes are devoted to the setup, introducing the new patient, his/her misdiagnosis and the friends and family surrounding him/her. The next forty minutes see House and his team pursue various clues while making wildly wrong diagnoses until in the final ten minutes House has an epiphany and comes up with the correct diagnosis. The fun, of course, is in the byplay between the characters and like any good mystery, guessing which are the real clues and which are the red herrings.

Wodehouse's Jeeves stories are much the same. Each story starts out with Bertie and his friends and relatives faced with a seemingly insurmountable personal situation, which after much drama is neatly solved by Jeeves. The fun in these stories is the dry, English humor and guessing what solution Jeeves will come up with. "Drama" is relative. Like "Seinfeld", these stories are about "nothing". Nothing important (to anyone but the rich, selfish characters) ever happens. No one ever dies or is seriously hurt. Yet to the characters in the stories, the situations in which they find themselves, are of vital importance. Only Jeeves can save them.

All the stories are told from Bertie's point of view.

As Jeeves might say, "I found the volume to be most satisfactory, sir. The typeface is of an agreeable size & style, & the binding quite sturdy seeming. It is a softcover book with many of the virtues of a hardcover volume, sir."
