Wodehouse made his reputation lampooning the British idle rich of the 1920s. His genius consists of elevating broad sitcom plots with Dickensian characters and witty narrative. In this superb volume of short stories featuring some of his favorite characters, Nigel Lambert sounds as if Wodehouse himself directed him. His timing is flawless, his characterizations masterful. Moreover, he throws himself so thoroughly into the narrative that even a much lesser text would sound hilarious and even exciting. This is a great comic interpreting the work of a great humorist.
