Bertie Wooster was indignant—and with reason. The neighbors had dared to make a fuss about the assiduous practicing of his beloved banjolele. But a further blow was to come. “If,” said Jeeves, “it is really your intention to continue playing that instrument, I have no option but to leave.” Haughtily rejecting this ultimatum, Bertie sought refuge in a cottage owned by his buddy, Lord Chuffington. But the peace and quiet were rudely shattered by the arrival of Pauline Stoker—to whom he was once unnervingly engaged—and her formidable father, who saw in Bertie a pestilential suitor barmy to the core.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The glory of Jeeves passes all overstatement. This incomparable valet reaches his apotheosis in Thank You, Jeeves.” New York Times
“Generally regarded as among the best of Wodehouse’s Jeeves/Bertie Wooster novels, Thank You, Jeeves and Jeeves in the Morning are timeless farces that should delight listeners as long as literacy survives. Their plots are similar, but that scarcely matters, as the pleasure in listening to them derives mostly from the author’s sparkling dialog and unmatched knack for inventive imagery. In each story, Bertie takes a country cottage (which gets burned down by a miscreant), tries to help a pal win the hand of the woman he craves to marry, is unwillingly sucked into becoming engaged himself, and calls on Jeeves to dish up a happy ending. Thank You, Jeeves is the more fun of the two titles because it offers the unusual twist of Jeeves leaving Bertie’s service; however, it will irritate some listeners with its occasional (and for Wodehouse unusual) use of outdated racial terminology. If the numbers of audio editions of Wodehouse are any indication of his popularity with library patrons, then his books must be among the most popular audio titles that circulate. That popularity is no doubt aided by the almost uniformly fine narrations of his books by Jonathan Cecil, who ranks among the best of the best. Highly recommended.” Library Journal (audio review)
“Jonathan Cecil gives a sparkling performance of this classic piece of Wodehouse humor. Cecil’s Jeeves speaks with the great dignity and classic accent one expects of the ideal valet. In contrast, Cecil performs Bertie with all the winsome frivolity due to the fictional aristocrat. Cecil maintains perfect distinction of these characters even during extended dialogues and adds characters with American accents when the attractive Pauline and her protective father appear on the scene. Wodehouse’s confection of muddled engagements and provoked musicians is perfectly narrated.” AudioFile

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.
