Wodehouse's warm and delightful humour is perhaps even more enjoyable in this little masterpiece than in most of his stories.
In this book, first published in 1963, the ever confused gentleman Bertram Wooster and his correct and very clever butler Jeeves find that they must go to Totleigh Towers to save the engagement of Bertram's former fiancée Madeline Bassett and his friend Gussie Fink-Nottle. This leads to many hilarous situations as we once again make the acquaintance of Madeline's father Watkyn, the Rev. H.P. "Stinker" Pinker, Stephanie "Stiffy" Byng, Roderick Spode and many of Wodehouse's other unforgettable characters.
If you need something to brighten up your day (or your life, for that matter), this is the book for you.
