Another PGW winnerPG Wodehouse is the funniest writer of the past century Wodehouse defies superlatives and is for my money the best comedic writer to ever put pen to paper Despite being a confirmed Wodehousian this is only the second Uncle Fred novel I have read According to Wikipedia the Uncle Fred stories comprise one short story and four novels two of which are set at Blandings CastleUncle Fred Flits By 1935 included in the collection Young Men in Spats 1936Uncle Fred in the Springtime 1939 a Blandings story Uncle Dynamite 1948Cocktail Time 1958Service with a Smile 1961 a Blandings storySo back to 'Cocktail Time' I can confirm that I smiled I chuckled and I laughed Not uite as much as the very best books by PG Wodehouse but a still a than satisfactory return Of course it is not all about humour the other pleasure of PG Wodehouse is the delightful writing and the playfulness that runs through his work and appears on each and every page His books are the best possible escape from the real world a retreat into a predictable amusing cheerful place where the lovelorn ultimately find solace and the pompous have their pomposity pricked I already eagerly await my next foray into the wonderful world of Wodehouse45
