Fore! by P. G. Wodehouse Book Resume:

A collection of golf stories from the celebrated satirist: “A delight. Wodehouse’s drives . . . were deadly accurate when writing about the game.” —TheBoston Globe P. G. Wodehouse, Britain’s beloved satirist and author of the famous Jeeves series, often said he wished he’d spent more time playing golf and less “fooling about writing stories and things.” Happily for all of us, the prolific writer often took his pen to the green. In Fore!, Wodehouse expert D. R. Bensen has collected a dozen pieces to delight golfers, those who know them, and even those who have never basked in the ecstasy of a perfect putt—into a collection by this great humorist that is “almost as much fun as playing a round” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). “Sure to please Wodehouse readers and re-readers, even those who’ve never sliced or putted.” —Kirkus Reviews

The World of Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse Book Resume:

A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus 'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight. As he wrote: 'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world. Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward. On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was: "Mrs Gregson to see you, sir." The second: "Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?" It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me. I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.

Above Average at Games

The Best Of Wodehouse [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Above Average at Games by P.G. Wodehouse Book Resume:

'Wodehouse would have made an excellent sports writer' Sunday Times As Wodehouse’s biographer Frances Donaldson observed, it was vitally important to the boy Plum that he was ‘above average at games’. Luckily, he was known at school as ‘a noted athlete, a fine footballer and cricketer [and] a boxer’, and sport inspired much of his earliest writings, as well as some of his very finest and laugh-out-loud funniest. Wodehouse wrote with trademark wit on a rich range of games – and on cricket and golf, in particular – as well as anyone ever has, bringing a knowledge and a passion born of practice. English cricket inspired in Wodehouse what he himself long considered to be his favourite work; and yet America (which he first visited keenly and then came to call home) led him to the love of baseball, and golf – enthusiasms that drew him to new tales for new audiences, including the celebrated golf stories which John Updike described as ‘the best fiction ever done about the sport.’ This rollicking anthology, selected, edited and introduced by the novelist Richard T. Kelly, offers a vivid picture of Wodehouse at play – in the ring, at the crease, on the tee – which is guaranteed to please any sporting crowd. Beginning with early journalism, taking in extracts from novels and short stories in their entirety, it all adds up to a medal-winning collection.

The Jeeves Collection

The Best Of Wodehouse [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Jeeves Collection by P. G. Wodehouse Book Resume:

Contents: My Man Jeeves Extricating Young Gussie Right Ho, Jeeves Jeeves is a fictional character in a series of humorous short stories and novels by P. G. Wodehouse, being the highly-competent valet of a wealthy and idle young Londoner named Bertie Wooster created in 1915. Both the name "Jeeves" and the character of Jeeves have come to be thought of as the quintessential name and nature of a valet or butler, inspiring many similar characters. The premise of the Jeeves stories is that the brilliant valet is firmly in control of his rich and foppish young employer's life. Jeeves becomes Bertie Wooster's protector and all-purpose problem solver, devising subtle plans to rescue Bertie and his friends from tiresome social obligations, demanding relatives, brushes with the law, and, above all, problems involving women. Wodehouse derives much comic effect from having Bertie, his narrator, remain blissfully unaware of Jeeves's machinations, until all is revealed at the end of the story.

Kid Brady Stories

The Best Of Wodehouse [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Kid Brady Stories by P. G. Wodehouse,Charles Harry Bovill Book Resume:

This volume reprints two of Wodehouse's earliest books which take the form of story sequences linked by a central character, a technique he used many times thereafter. Delightful in themselves, they are interesting chiefly as windows on a great writer's early evolution. In The Man of Means, he looks forward to Bertie Wooster and Ukridge, but also back to his Victorian models, in a fantastic tale of the little man struggling with fate. When a humble clerk comes into a fortune, he embarks on a series of misadventures which suggest that wealth is not necessarily an unmixed blessing. Here we see signs of the satirical writer Wodehouse might have become, and the spirit of Chaplin is not far away.

Hot Water by P.G. Wodehouse Book Resume:

A P.G. Wodehouse novel Château Blissac, on its hill above St Roque, is in a setting where every prospect pleases. But it doesn't please its current occupier, J. Wellington Gedge. Mr Gedge wants none of it - and particularly none of the domineering Mrs Gedge's imperious wish that he should become American Ambassador to Paris. Instead he pines for the simpler life of California, where men are men and filling stations stand tall. Mrs Gedge has powerful allies - including the prohibitionist Senator Opal. But will she get her way? And will the Senator's delightful daughter Jane get her man? In a plot which involves safe-blowers, con men, jewel-thieves and even a Bloomsbury novelist, few are quite as they seem. But the heady atmosphere of France in the 1930s makes for one of Wodehouse's most delightful comedies.
