It's the height of the Jazz Age, and the roaring twenties are in full-roar in and around London and the English countryside. Bingo Little, the twins, Steggles, and Aunt Agatha are among the banes of young Bertie Wooster's casual existence; but fortunately, Bertie has his gentleman's gentleman, his valet, the forever-ready Jeeves to come to his rescue. This novel - or more accurately this narrative collection of brief interludes - is the perfect introduction to the writings of P.G. Wodehouse, the comedic voice of a generation and time nearly a century hence, but as familiar and ever-present as Orphan Annie and Charlie Chaplain. First published in 1923, The Inimitable Jeeves has finally entered the public domain, and this audio production, originally recorded for the Thrills and Mystery Podcast, is here just in time to usher in the next decade of "roaring" twenties. So dust off your spats, don your finest flapper dress, pour some bathtub gin, and surround yourself in deco architecture as you immerse yourself into Bertie Wooster's world again for the first time.Show more

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 coolheaded 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.'Show more
My Man Jeeves is a work by P. G. Wodehouse now brought to you in this new audiobook edition of the timeless classic. Bertram Wooster is an English gentleman living in New York, who seems to get himself into all sorts of jams. It's up to his manservant Jeeves to come up with the plan to save the day from unpleasant houseguests, stingy uncles, broken hearts, and hard-partying aunts. My Man Jeeves is sure to please anyone with a taste for pithy buffoonery, moronic misunderstandings, gaffes, and aristocratic slapstick.Show more
Two great stories featuring the inimitable Jeeves! In 'Jeeves Takes Charge,' the ubiquitous butler comes to the rescue of his new master, Bertie Wooster, from a fate worse than death, so they say. And in the second tale, 'Extricating Young Gussie,' poor Bertie is summarily dispatched to New York by an overbearing aunt to extract his cousin from an amorous affair with a vaudeville artist. How absolutely dreadful!Show more
The Times has announced, much to Bertie's astonishment, the news of his engagement to the beautiful Bobbie Wickham. But worse is yet to come... Uncle Tom's antique silver cow-creamer has gone missing. Kipper Herring has learned his and Bertie's former headmaster, leading British psychiatrist Sir Roderick Glossop, is posing as a butler, and Aunt Dahlia's masterly French chef is in trouble. By a rare stroke of genius, Bertie finds a solution to all these problems, which is to recall Jeeves from his annual holiday. The incomparable manservant sorts everybody out in his usual imperturbable style. This title is also known as Jeeves in the Offing.Show more
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.Show more
