Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Cecil delivers what seems to be a full cast performance all by himself, as he shifts pace, tone, even breath quality, to bring dozens of characters to life. This recording is a rare treat.”  AudioFile
“A major delight of Wodehouse’s timeless comedy is his enduring optimism. Jonathan Cecil has an amazing range of vocal dexterity, making both the squeakiest of pipsqueaks and the gruffest of old blusterers equally convincing. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor—bubblingly witty and dryly loony.” Entertainment Weekly

Author Bio: P. G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
