A wonderful Christmas gift collection of short Wodehouse extracts, combining the wit and wisdom of the Master.
The Wit and Wisdom of the Master – all compacted into 128 pithy pages! Tony Ring, the president of the Wodehouse Association and author of the 600,000-word Millennium Wodehouse Concordance, has drawn on his extensive knowledge and even more wonderful enthusiasm to compile an absolutely cracking anthology, which answers all our Christmas present problems in one volume. Here are not only witty epigrams we all know and love (and perhaps lots we don’t!) but also longer humorous extracts which are full of wisdom.
Evelyn Waugh has written that Wodehouse produced three wholly original similes on every page he wrote – which, even allowing for exaggeration, must make this one of the most original gift books ever! It will certainly be one of the funniest…
“A jolly collection of wit and one-liners from one of our best-loved humorists”
“This anthology is a feast of humour”
“The finest and funniest writer the past century ever knew”
“Sublime comic genius”
“The funniest writer ever to put words to paper”
“P.G. Wodehouse wrote the best English comic novels of the century”
“Witty and effortlessly fluid. His books are laugh-out-loud funny”
“The Wodehouse wit should be registered at Police HQ as a chemical weapon”
“The greatest comic writer ever”
“When it comes to humour, there is only one writer who can slay you with a mere flip of the pen. This, of course, is P.G. Wodehouse”
