Despite reading more than half of Wodehouse's oeuvre and adoring Jeeves & Wooster, I'd never gotten around to this one because it was written in 1960, when Plum was 79 and well past his prime. Well, blow me down: this one's a pip! A little looser and lazier than the absolute cream of the crop but still amusing throughout and achingly funny in spots. As usual, the plot's nearly irrelevant. It's his turns of phrase that make Wodehouse the Master, and "How Right" has them pirouetting all over the place. This shouldn't be anyone's first Jeeves - "Code of the Woosters" and "Joy in the Morning" lead the pack - but it will not disappoint the fans.
