Product Description

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 volumes. The first collects Wodehouse’s stories of Kid Brady, a boxer from Wyoming, and Roland Bleke, a young man for whom financial success is a mixed blessing. The second collects two versions of a satirical novel about a country invaded by no less than nine aggressors.

Praise for the work of P.G. Wodehouse:"Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever." —Douglas Adams

"Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own." —Evelyn Waugh

“Overlook Press is publishing a set of clothbound collector’s edition of the master’s work. They’re beautiful books, much welcome.” —Bookforum

“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 souffles, you can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose.” —Entertainment Weekly

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.
