"I can't help but see Messrs. Fry & Laurie as the inimitable Jeeves And Wooster..."

I agree - can't call up any other images.

Ask Mr. C for a good PGW book to start with - & a couple of others to follow. I'd like to start in on them.

Mostly, I've read a lot _about_ PGW and about the books - but have not the books themselves.

Surely you should start with Jeeves Takes Charge? However since you have on hand a real expert we will await his advice.


Oh, I adore PGW, esp. the Jeeves & Wooster series. 'Right Ho, Jeeves' is actually probably my favourite, although 'Thank You, Jeeves' is also a close contender.

Welcome to the PGW fanclub! You have hours of innocent fun ahead of you, as Terry Wogan puts it!

I am yet to give P.G. Wodehouse a go and saw a very old and very fabulous collection of his stories (I think its the one in your picture) at the weekend in a charity shop and didnt buy it... I wish I had!


Surfing the Net turned up an interesting (& fun) article by Hugh Laurie called "Wodehouse Saved My Life" - in the Daily Telegraph back in 1999:


Sophie,the other one Gareth suggested I might begin with is "The Code of the Woosters", but I think he finds it hard to choose a favourite!


Nancy - I, too, have red the Hugh Laurie article. I have only just discovered PGW in the last year and have already have to curtail my reading of any of his books in public places as my resultant quivering and mirth has garnered many sideways glances from people who avoid me very carefully. Lots more to go but so far the Jeeves and Wooster series are my favourite though Blandings is also brilliant.

Difficult to explain why they are funny - they just ARE and you have to read them to understand. I simply love them all.
