One of the earliest and best collections of stories about hapless aristocrat Bertie Wooster and his supremely efficient valet Jeeves, this volume centers on the romantic travails of Bertie´s school chum, Bingo Little. A splendid introduction to P. G. Wodehouse´s most popular characters, these comic gems recount Bertie´s reluctant involvement in Bingo´s misadventures and Jeeves´ uncanny ability to rescue his employer from every scrape. In the opening entry, ´´Jeeves Exerts the Old Cerebellum,´´ Bingo seeks help in persuading his wealthy guardian to accept his socially undesirable fiancée. Mabel the waitress is only the first in a succession of Bingo´s romantic interests, which include a parson´s niece, a Communist, and Bertie´s own fiancée?among others. Eighteen connected stories trace Bingo and Bertie´s shenanigans at home and abroad and introduce assorted Wooster relatives, from the terrifying Aunt Agatha to Claude and Eustace, the fun-loving, trouble-making twins. The collection is particularly distinguished by the inclusion of a Wodehouse masterpiece, ´´The Great Sermon Handicap,´´ in which bets are placed on the length of a Sunday oration and hilarity ensues.
