Product Description

Young Men in Spats is Wodehouse at his most sparkling: stories concerning members of the inimitable Drones Club-they may be small of brain and short on cash but they are always good for ingenious adventures.

Wodehouse novels offer almost everything a reader could ask for sharply drawn characters, intriguing stories, and exquisite prose. Each volume has been reset and printed on Scottish cream-wove, acid free paper, sewn and bound in cloth. They are elegant and essential additions to any Wodehouse fan's library. They are brilliant gifts for friends or family, or simply to indulge oneself!

"His novels are the very definition of British humor bubblingly witty and dryly loony. Overlook Press continues its reissue of a handful of these absurd souffles. You can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose." Entertainment Weekly

"When Overlook Press repackaged a line of titles by the British humorist P.G. Wodehouse, the house devoted great attention to producing high-quality editions of the books which feature full cloth covers and beautiful, striped endpapers." Publishers Weekly

"They're beautiful books, much welcome." Book Forum
