Something Fresh (Collector's Wodehouse)

Something Fresh - P.G. Wodehouse This is probably my favorite Wodehouse book. There is something refreshing, cleansing, and joyful about reading this book. Laughter is a great healer, and this book is top on my list of remedies. Especially the section where three men collide, quite literally, and provide the scenario that never fails to make me laugh aloud. The Efficient Baxter, a man in love bringing a midnight snack of cold tongue to his beloved, and a valet sworn to pinch a priceless scarab from the Blandings museum -- all brought together in perfect harmony as can only be done by Wodehouse.
