Review: Just Enough Jeeves: Right Ho, Jeeves; Joy in the Morning; Very Good, Jeeves

Just Enough Jeeves: Right Ho, Jeeves; Joy in the Morning; Very Good, Jeeves
Just Enough Jeeves: Right Ho, Jeeves; Joy in the Morning; Very Good, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cracking good stuff. I snorted in my chair dozens of times, even at the stories I had read time and again. Wodehouse was one of the great masters of humor, and his every analogy and metaphor a sight to behold.

This is a newly combined volume from WW Norton, putting together Joy in the Morning, Very Good, Jeeves, and Right Ho, Jeeves together in one volume, giving you, as the title indicates, just enough Jeeves. Spanning the heart of Wodehouse’s productivity, these three volumes gives us Jeeves at his finest, with one of the very best Jeeves novels in the lead-off spot, sandwiching the short story collection Very Good, Jeeves, and finishing with one of the most famous novels, Right Ho, Jeeves. Wodehouse’s biographer Robert McCrum ably introduces these and other salient facts, and gives us a quick sketch of Wodehouse himself in order to launch the thing. Once his agreeable intro has been digested, the fun begins, and doesn’t stop until page 712.
