Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There are several great Wodehouse narrators—Martin Jarvis and Edward Duke, for example—who can sound wry and silly and imperious and pompous as the characters biff on and off the stage. Jonathan Cecil is one of them. He has a twinkle in his voice as the characters blunder about.” AudioFile
“Jonathan Cecil, equally adept at the silly and the pompous, matches Alexander Spencer and Martin Jarvis as a great Wodehouse interpreter.” Library Journal
“P. G. Wodehouse is still the funniest writer ever to have put words on paper.” Hugh Laurie, praise for the author
“Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever.” Douglas Adams, praise for the author

Author Bio: P. G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
