Description
The author of The Girl at the Lion d'Or, Birdsong, and Charlotte Gray, Sebastian Faulks has read P.G. Wodehouse with joy and admiration for almost half a century. In this delightful homage, authorized by Wodehouse's estate, Faulks gives us a superb, spot-on addition to the chronicles of gentleman's gentleman Jeeves and his bumbling yet affable employer Bertie Wooster. On this occasion, however, it is Jeeves who is to be seen in the drawing room, while Bertie finds himself below stairs—a position he doesn't care for at all—as part of Jeeves's scheme for Bertie to win the hand of the lovely Georgiana, seemingly destined for another. And yet Bertie wonders, does the ever-reliable Jeeves actually have an ulterior motive?

"At two memorable moments in "Jeeves and the Wedding Bells" I did indeed laugh until I cried.... Faulks captures perfectly both the tone and the spirit of Wodehouse's originals.... This is a pitch-perfect undertaking: proof, almost a century after his debut, that Jeeves may not be so inimitable after all."—Spectator (London)

"The finished product resembles, in all but cover, a traditional Wodehousian yarn. Harking back to the summer of 1926, it is a gentle, jolly tale—of farce and mistaken identity, of love lost and found, of cricket matches, village fetes and the eccentric upper classes."—Telegraph (London)
