"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 is one of the funniest and most productive men who ever wrote in English. He is far from being a mere jokesmith: he is an authentic craftsman, a wit and humorist of the first water, the inventor of a prose style which is a kind of comic poetry." -Richard Voorhees First published in 1923, The Inimitable Jeeves follows young Bertie Wooster as he complicates every attempt…mehr

"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 is one of the funniest and most productive men who ever wrote in English. He is far from being a mere jokesmith: he is an authentic craftsman, a wit and humorist of the first water, the inventor of a prose style which is a kind of comic poetry." -Richard Voorhees First published in 1923, The Inimitable Jeeves follows young Bertie Wooster as he complicates every attempt to aid the easily confused Bingo Little's pursuit of true love. Disaster surely awaits, unless they can trust in the intervention of Bertie's serenely competent valet, Jeeves. The Inimitable Jeeves is a chain of short stories masterfully fused into a novel and one of the best-known books about the author's most famous characters, Bertie Wooster and Jeeves. Well meaning, but often clueless, man-about-town Bertie narrates his adventures with assorted friends and relatives. These deal primarily with his chum Bingo Little's astounding ability to fall instantly and randomly in love and then conceive of startlingly absurd methods of getting himself into his beloved's good graces. Wodehouse's joyous farce showcases his trademark vision of a timeless and comfortable England, a collection of generally less-than-perceptive characters, and most especially his sublime prose- deadpan, precise and ceaselessly inventive. The author's vision and style have proven uniquely his own, resist any attempt at imitation and will continue to offer readers entrance into a world of charm and urbane hilarity. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Inimitable Jeeves is both modern and readable. The Inimitable Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse chronicles the divinely hapless Bertie Wooster's attempts to assist a friend in matters of the heart, inevitably resulting in socially awkward and potentially calamitous difficulties that can only be solved by the smooth skills of his valet, Jeeves. A classic of polished prose and distinctly British humor.
Autorenporträt
P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English author, playwright and lyricist commonly considered one of the foremost humorists of his era. His happy school years and huge family provided him with material and inspiration to begin writing fiction. His first novel appeared when he was 21 and his last when he was 92. The author's vision of an idyllic England populated by a vast collection of eccentric characters facing an endless chain of farcical challenges is uniquely humorous and elevated by a lucid, inventive prose style that won him accolades from the most stringent critics. His most famous characters, Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet, Jeeves, continue to delight readers and find their way into television and films.
