Abstract

The Code of the Woosters PG Wodehouse Arrow, 2008, PB, 304pp, £7.99 978-0099513759

If Bertie Wooster was an academic GP, and was found gloomily contemplating the depredations of QOF and REF over the antemeridian eggs and crumpets, you can be certain that a certain urbane chap of prodigious intellect, imperturbable in any calamity or crises, would shimmer into the breakfast room and prompt him into constructive reflection with an apt literary aphorism. ‘“When sorrows come, they come not single spies. But in battalions” as the bard would have had it, sir.’ Jeeves would say. A prelude to ensuing pages of supreme literary comic joy, in which Jeeves would exert his capacious cerebrum to lift his master out of the soup
