What Ho!: The Best of Wodehouse
A collection of the finest and funniest words from the finest funniest writer the past century ever knew. Published for the millennium and to mark the 25th anniversary of his death, this is the first major selection of the whole of P.G. Wodehouse's work to have been published for a generation, and it includes a generous selection of previously unpublished work.
We all know Jeeves and Wooster, but what is the best Jeeves story? What is your favourite story to feature Lord Emsworth and his unique pig, the Empress Blandings? And how many readers of Wodehouse know the best of Ukridge, the Oldest Member, the Hollwood stories? This bumper anthology of stories, novel-extracts, working drafts, articles, letters and poems gives a fresh angle on the twentieth century's greatest humorist.
There are favourites aplenty, but this selection provides the best overall celebration of side-splitting humour and sheer good nature available in the pages of any book. The anthology has been compiled with enthusiastic support from the various P.G. Wodehouse societies around the world.
