My Man Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse.
My Man Jeeves, first published in
1919, introduced the world to affable, indolent Bertie Wooster and his
precise, capable valet, Jeeves. Some of the finest examples of humorous
writing found in English literature are woven around the relationship
between these two men of very different classes and temperaments. Where
Bertie is impetuous and feeble, Jeeves is cool-headed and poised. This
collection, the first book of Jeeves and Wooster stories, includes
"Absent Treatment," "Helping Freddie," "Rallying Round Old George,"
"Doing Clarence a Bit of Good," "Fixing It for Freddie," and "Bertie
Changes His Mind."
