Quote from: PlumEvery author really wants to have letters printed in the papers. Unable to make the grade, he drops down a rung of the ladder and writes novels.

Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on June 19, 2009, 10:18:48 AMThere's no way to understand that phrase, and its dramatic weight, save through reading The Code of the Woosters.Yet its yoke is easy, and its burthen is light.
Quote from: bhodges on June 19, 2009, 11:19:58 AMWodehouse had almost unequalled comic timing; the rhythm of his writing is almost like chamber music. The characters he created, and the way in which he describes their foibles and pratfalls, inevitably finds me laughing, often for his sheer virtuosity in assembling a particular sentence.
Quote from: Elgarian on June 19, 2009, 11:29:39 AMWelcome, Comrade Bruce. Let us chat among the teacups. You might make a long arm and pass the plum jam? Preserves as a rule give me the pip, but plum preserves are just the thing for delicately-constituted coves like ourselves.

Quote from: opus106 on June 21, 2009, 07:53:27 AMThe Blandlings Castle series and Psmith stories (the P is silent as in pshrimp). I have till now come across only one from the former. While it doesn't offer you the vantage point as in Jeeves and Wooster, namely Bertie's mind, it is all top-class Wodehouse. As for Psmith, I have a 3-in-1 sitting on my shelf for a long time, as I have been busy with other books in general.
