Plum Pie (Jeeves, #13.5)

By P.G. Wodehouse

Rating: 5 stars

This is a great collection of short stories by the master of upper class absurdity including one Jeeves and Wooster story, two Bingo Little ones and one Ukridge story. All are great fun to read and full of the warm humour that is Wodehouse’s trademark.

The stories are interspersed with little vignettes of ‘Our Man in America’, being (supposed) newspaper cuttings and commentary on life in America. It’s hard to know if they’re factual or not, since many of them are extremely silly or surreal, and yet real life has a habit of being stranger than fiction, especially in America.

A great collection for any established Wodehouse fan and a great way to get a flavour of his work for the newbie.
