Very Good, Jeeves!
Very Good Jeeves! (1930) is a collection of eleven short stories starring Bertie Wooster in eleven alarming predicaments from which he has to be rescued by his peerless gentleman’s gentleman. Whether Bertie is tangling with a red-headed ball of fire such as Roberta Wickham, dealing with an irate headmistress, placating a rampaging aunt, puncturing the wrong hot water bottle, singing ‘Sonny Boy’, or simply trying to concentrate on his golf handicap, Jeeves is always there to help – though rarely in ways which his employer expects. These brilliantly plotted stories give the essence of Wodehousian comedy.
