A Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus 'Jeeves knows his place, and it is between the covers of a book.' This is an omnibus of wonderful Jeeves and Wooster stories, specially selected and introduced by Wodehouse himself, who was struck by the size of his selection and described it as almost the ideal paperweight. As he wrote: 'I find it curious, now that I have written so much about him, to recall how softly and undramatically Jeeves first entered my little world. Characteristically, he did not thrust himself forward. On that occasion, he spoke just two lines. The first was: "Mrs Gregson to see you, sir." The second: "Very good, sir, which suit will you wear?" It was only some time later that the man's qualities dawned upon me. I still blush to think of the off-hand way I treated him at our first encounter...'. This omnibus contains Carry On, Jeeves, The Inimitable Jeeves, Very Good, Jeeves and the short stories 'Jeeves Makes an Omelette' and 'Jeeves and the Greasy Bird'.… (mere)

Han får derfor lokket Bertie til at aflægge visit på en pigeskole, hvor han også får arrangeret at Bertie skal holde tale for alle pigerne. Det ender naturligvis helt galt for Jeeves får også Bertie miskrediteret ved pigeskolens leder, miss Tomlinson, og de ender med at stikke halen mellem benene og køre væk. Berties ide om måske at finde et hus, hvor han også havde plads til at have søsteren, mrs Scholfield og hendes tre døtre boende, er forsvundet samme sted hen som ideen om ægteskab og børn.

These stories are, above all, a nearly exhaustive series of experiments in the comic possibilities of language. Well — perhaps Wodehouse's linguistic virtuosity isn't such a big secret. Everyone who reads him comes upon turns of phrase that refuse to be dislodged from the mind; almost everyone who writes about him winds up abandoning analysis in favor of chapter- and-verse quotation. The secret of the Jeeves stories is in the inspired combination of radically different modes of expression; what remains mysterious is how Wodehouse hit upon this extraordinary recipe, and why he alone seems to get it exactly right. It's as miraculous as Jeeves' hangover remedy,

Now, touching this business of old Jeeves - my man, you know - how do we stand?
Introduction This trackless desert of print which we see before us, winding on and on into the purple distance, represents my first Omnibus Book: and I must confess that, as I contemplate it, I cannot overcome a slight feeling of chestiness, just the faint beginning of that offensive conceit against which we authors have to guard so carefully.

On the occasions when Aunt is calling Aunt like mastodons bellowing across premieval swamps and Uncle James's letter about Cousin Mabel's peculiar behaviour is being shot round the family circle ('Please read this carefully and send it on Jane') the clan has a tendency to ignore me.
