Wodehouse at his best

Stiff Upper Lip, JeevesStiff Upper Lip, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

P. G. Wodehouse is hysterical, and his Jeeves & Wooster stories are the creme de la creme. When Douglas Wilson and Christopher Hitchens debated one another, they mentioned their one area of common ground: their love of Wodehouse, at which point they started quoting lines from his works.

This novel finds Wooster trying to stave off marriage to Madeleine Bassett, and to do so he must revisit Totleigh Towers. There are more twists and turns in this story than any 3 roller coasters put together.
