          Sinopsis
          First published in the “Saturday Evening Post” from December of 1933 to January 1934, “Right Ho, Jeeves” is P. G. Wodehouse’s second full-length novel, following “Thank You, Jeeves”, featuring his beloved characters Bertie Wooster and his highly capable valet, Jeeves. At the outset we find Bertie returning from Cannes to discover that his old friend Gussie Fink-Nottle has been regularly visiting Jeeves to ask his advice in matters of the heart. Gussie, shy and timid, is in love with the silly, young Madeline Bassett, and is intent on courting her. Madeline is a friend of Bertie’s cousin, Angela Travers, and Bertie takes it on himself to help Gussie and refuses any more advice from Jeeves in the matter. As one would expect with Bertie’s involvement, hilarious mistakes and misunderstandings abound. As part of his foolish schemes, Bertie inadvertently gets Gussie drunk when he is due to hand out prizes at a school and the result is a scene hailed as one of the most comical in all of English literature. Before long Bertie admits defeat and Jeeves is implored upon to sort everyone out and fix his mess. “Right Ho, Jeeves” was an immediate critical and commercial success and is considered to this day to be one of the funniest and most entertaining of all English novels. This edition includes a biographical afterword.
          Acerca de P. G. Wodehouse

          Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (P. G. Wodehouse) was an English humorist and writer best known for his Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels. Educated at boarding schools, Wodehouse turned to writing at a young age, demonstrating great skill at humorous sketches and musical lyrics. He continued to write part-time while pursuing, at the behest of his father, a career in banking, and successfully contributed numerous pieces to Punch, Vanity Fair, and The Daily Express, among other publications. In addition to his literary work, Wodehouse was incorporated into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in recognition of his collaboration with Cole Porter on Anything Goes, his lyrics to the song "Bill" from Show Boat, and his work on the musicals Rosalie and The Three Musketeers.While interned along with other British citizens in Germany during the Second World War, Wodehouse made a series of radio broadcasts for which he was accused of being a collaborator; and, although later cleared of the charges, he never returned to England. His work has influenced many other writers including Evelyn Waugh, Rudyard Kipling, J. K. Rowling, and John Le Carré. P. G. Wodehouse died in 1975 at the age of 93.
