Wodehouse is a tonic - New Yorker
A Wodehouse pick-me-up that'll lift your spirits, whatever your mood. Cheaper and more effective than Valium.
Offers ‘relief from anxiety, raginess or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour’.
Read when you’re well and when you’re poorly; when you’re travelling, and when you’re not; when you’re feeling clever, and when you’re feeling utterly dim.
Whatever your mood, P. G. Wodehouse, widely acknowledged to be ‘the best English comic novelist of the century’, is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Why? Because ‘Mr Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.’ How? You don’t analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.
