Wodehouse is a tonic – New Yorker. A Wodehouse pick-me-up thatll lift your spirits, whatever your mood. Cheaper and more effective than Valium.* Offers relief from anxiety, raginess or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour.* Read when youre well and when youre poorly; when youre travelling, and when youre not; when youre feeling clever, and when youre feeling utterly dim.* Whatever your mood, P. G. Wodehouse, widely acknowledged to be the best English comic novelist of the century*, is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Why? Because Mr Wodehouses idyllic world can never stale. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.* How? You dont analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.* *Olivia Williams *Caitlin Moran *Lynne Truss *Sebastian Faulks *Evelyn Waugh *Stephen Fry In the Anglers Rest, drinking hot scotch and lemon, sits one of Wodehouses greatest raconteurs. Mr Mulliner, his vivid imagination lubricated by Miss Postlethwaite the barmaid, has fabulous stories to tell of the extraordinary behaviour of his far-flung family: theres Cyril, the timid interior designer, who finds himself drunkenly playing this little piggy with his beloveds formidable and angry mothers toes – how can that possibly end well?! And then theres Wilfred, who lights on the formula for Buck-U-Uppo, a tonic given to elephants to enable them to face tigers with the necessary nonchalance… Add one of the best Jeeves and Wooster stories and youve got a medley of Wodehouse delights in which lunacy and comic exuberance reign supreme. Contents: – Mulliners Buck-u-uppo – The Spot of Art – Strychnine in the Soup
