it was amazing

P.G. Wodehouse. The man was a genius and one of the great writers of the 20th Century. Period. Boris Vian loved him. Pynchon, I bet, loves him. In fact I suspect he's a writer's writer. If not, then there is something wrong with contemporary writing.

One can choose any title -and it's all the same. In one word, great! For whatever reason, I find Mulliner Nights my favorite. Why? I don't know why. All I can tell you is that it is a set of stories where Mr. Mulliner is in his favorite pub and he starts telling these crazy tales. It's hysterical. But all Wodehouse novels are hysterical. How many books did he write? One million, and every one of them is a hoot. Genius galore! I am not kidding. And I strongly suggest all writers study this man's prose work, because he is a real writer. He doesn't mess around. He gets in and then he gets out. You want to study plotting, how to get from A to Zed? Wodehouse will teach you.

All I know is that the rich are super funny people!

Kimley I read one of the Jeeves books a long time ago and remember liking it. I need to read more of this guy's stuff!

You know, Tosh, I do believe you're in need of a Valet!
