Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus: The Mating Season / The Code of the Woosters / Right Ho, Jeeves by P.G. WodehouseIncludes:
- The Mating Season
- The Code of the Woosters
- Right Ho, Jeeves
From the introduction by Hugh Laurie: The first thing you should know and probably the last too is that PG Wodehouse is still the funniest writer ever to put words on paper. This much is uncontested by all but the most irretrievably insane. Fact number two: with the Jeeves stories, Wodehouse created the best of the best. The world of Jeeves is complete and integral; every bit as structured, layered, ordered, complex and self-contained as King Lear and considerably funnier.
Bertie is embroiled in plot and counterplot in these three glorious Jeeves and Wooster novels. In The Mating Season, Bertie pretends he is his old pal Gussie Fink-Nottle to ensure Gussies engagement to the soppy Madeline Bassett comes to no harm. The Code of the Woosters finds Bertie in an even worse mess. His fearsome Aunt Dahlia has blackmailed him into purloining a particularly hideous cow-creamer from the home of Sir Watkyn Bassett. Unfortunately, other parties have their own plans for the unsavoury item, and for Bertie too. In Right Ho, Jeeves, Bertie takes matters in hand when Jeeves suggests Berties friend Gussie Fink-Nottle puts on scarlet tights and a false beard to achieve the object of his desire. As usual, only Jeeves can sort out the ensuing chaos. The funniest writer ever to put words on paper. Hugh Laurie

He and his friends, who are mainly members of The Drones Club , are extricated from all manner of societal misadventures by the indispensable valet "gentleman's personal gentleman" Jeeves. In the television documentary Fry and Laurie Reunited , the actors, reminiscing about their involvement in the series, revealed that they were initially reluctant to play the parts of Jeeves and Wooster, but eventually decided to do so because the series was going to be made with or without them and they felt no one else would do the parts justice. Many of the programme's supporting roles — including significant characters such as Aunt Agatha , Madeline Bassett and Gussie Fink-Nottle — were played by more than one actor.
