Synopses & Reviews
P. G. Wodehouse is recognized as the greatest English comic writer of the twentieth century. His characters and settings have entered our language and our mythology. Launched on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, the Overlook Wodehouse will eventually contain all the novels and stories, edited and reset. Each Overlook volume will be the finest edition of the master ever published . . . and we're over two-thirds of the way there
A Few Quick Ones is one of Wodehouse's famous collections of ten stories in which many old friends reappear in deliciously absurd situations. Some of his favorite characters are here for the party-Jeeves and Wooster, Mr. Mulliner, Ukridge and, of course, the Drones are in force.
