The Code of the Woosters: (Jeeves & Wooster)
By P.G. Wodehouse. Illustration taken from The Strand Magazine 1926.
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century.
The Jeeves series consists of 35 short stories and 11 novels. With minor exceptions, the short stories were written and published first (between 1915 and 1930); the novels later (between 1934 and 1974).
The stories are set in three primary locations: London, where Wooster has a flat and is a member of the raucous Drones Club; various stately homes in the English countryside, most commonly Totleigh Towers or Brinkley Court; or New York City and a few other locations in the United States. All take place in a timeless world based on an idealised vision of England before World War II. Only Ring for Jeeves mentions World War II.
