One of the greatest English comic writers of our time, P. G. Wodehouse represents an antic high point in the world of farce and social satire. His characters and settings have entered our language and our mythology. Best known for the creation of two fictional worlds based on Blandings Castle and the Wooster-Jeeves duo, Wodehouse is appreciated the world over for his exceedingly clever and comically savvy send-ups of the idle rich in twentieth-century England. Overlook is proud to have embarked on a program of handsomely packaged full-cloth editions, arguably the finest editions of the master ever published. Book jacket.
