"The first thing you should know, and probably the last, too, is that P G Wodehouse is still the funniest writer ever to have put words on paper.…with the Jeeves stories, Wodehouse created the best of the best.…Jeeves is the jewel, and anyone who tries to tell you different can be shown the door, the mini-cab, the train station and Terminal 4 at Heathrow with a clear conscience. The world of Jeeves is complete and integral, every bit as structured, layered, ordered, complex and self-contained as King Lear, and considerably funnier."

Hugh Laurie, writing in the Sunday Telegraph, 23 May 1999
