Overview

In this early "Jeeves" novel, the infamous Bertie Wooster, rebuffing the assistance of his trusty manservant Jeeves, attempts to help his old chum and newt-fancier Gussie Fink-Nottle win the affections of the goofy but adorable Madeline Bassett.  But without Jeeves to lend a hand, chaos ensues and Bertie finds himself accidentally - and horribly - engaged to Madeline himself.

"Right Ho, Jeeves" contains a passage described by actor Stephen Fry (a Jeeves and Bertie veteran) as "“the single funniest piece of sustained writing in the language."

A much beloved romp by the master of satirical comedy, the legendary P.G. Wodehouse.

What People are Saying About This

Evelyn Waugh

Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.

Stephen Fry

The masterly episode where Gussie Fink-Nottle presents the prizes at Market Snodsbury grammar school is frequently included in collections of great comic literature and has often been described as the single funniest piece of sustained writing in the language. I would urge you,
however, to head straight for a library or bookshop and get hold of the complete novel Right Ho, Jeeves, where you will encounter it fully in context and find that it leaps even more magnificently to life.

Kingsley Amis

The works of Wodehouse continue on their unique way, unmarked by the passage of time.

Lynne Truss

You should read Wodehouse when you’re well, and when you’re poorly; when you’re travelling, and when you’re not; when you’re feeling clever, and when you’re feeling utterly dim. Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already.
