My Man Jeeves, first published in 1919, introduced the world to affable, indolent Bertie Wooster and his precise, capable valet, Jeeves. Some of the finest examples of humorous writing found in English literature are woven around the relationship between these two men of very different classes and temperaments. Where Bertie is impetuous and feeble, Jeeves is cool-headed and poised. This collection, the first book of Jeeves and Wooster stories, includes "Absent Treatment," "Helping Freddie," "Rallying Round Old George," "Doing Clarence a Bit of Good," "Fixing It for Freddie," and "Bertie Changes His Mind."

Finish something-or-other, not sure what I want to read next, or not ready to start something just before bed, or I don't have another book in my work bag (well, except for ...
I downloaded a number of P.G. Wodehouse items free for kindle, and this, the first I've read, is also a very early item chronologically from the looks of it. (The absence of real upfront bibliographical information in some of these scans continues to bother me). Anyway, I acquired this for chuckles ...
