Product Description

The 90 and 91st of Overlook’s great series of Wodehouse novels. P.G. Wodehouse is recognized as the greatest English comic writer of the twentieth century, rightly admired throughout the world and translated into more than thirty languages. Launched on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, this series presents each Overlook Wodehouse as the finest edition of the master’s work ever published--beautifully designed and faithful to the original.

This season, Overlook is pleased to offer the latest two hilarious novels, The White Feather, a school story, and French Leave, a classic Wodehouse tale of mixed up lovers and impoverished aristocrats.

"Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever." —Douglas Adams

"Could a P. G. Wodehouse revival be more timely? Overlook Press, which is reissuing Wodehouse’s comic novels, clearly has its finger on America’s pulse…With its sumptuously bound editions, Overlook Press has done the master proud." —Los Angeles Times

"Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor--bubblingly witty and dryly loony. And as Overlook continues its reissue of these absurd soufflés, you can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose" —Entertainment Weekly

"Writers from Evelyn Waugh and George Orwell to Frank McCourt and Ben Elton have praised not only Wodehouse’s comic genius but also his impeccable craftsmanship…Each element in a Wodehouse plot, however comically familiar, is irreplaceable." —Boston Globe

"The jokes in Wodehouse aren’t like anyone else’s jokes, because they depend less on punch lines than on how he manipulates the language--flawlessly, but with a well-honed sense of fun." —Newsweek


P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) spent much of his life in Southampton, New York, but was born in England and educated in Surrey. He became an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books and twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.
