'Wodehouse is a tonic' - New Yorker. A Wodehouse pick-me-up that'll lift your spirits, whatever your mood. ‘Cheaper and more effective than Valium’.* Offers ‘relief from anxiety, raginess or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour’.* ‘Read when you’re well and when you’re poorly; when you’re travelling, and when you’re not; when you’re feeling clever, and when you’re feeling utterly dim.’* Whatever your mood, P. G. Wodehouse, widely acknowledged to be ‘the best English comic novelist of the century’*, is guaranteed to lift your spirits. Why? Because ‘Mr Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.’* How? ‘You don’t analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.’* *Olivia Williams *Caitlin Moran *Lynne Truss *Sebastian Faulks *Evelyn Waugh *Stephen Fry This collection contains two of the best Jeeves stories, in which the gentleman’s gentleman endeavours to smooth over Bertie Wooster’s relentless haplessness. Add in the story of a private detective who can make the guilty confess simply by smiling at them, told by one of Wodehouse’s greatest raconteurs, and you’ve got an assortment of Wodehouse delights in which lunacy and comic exuberance reign supreme. Contents: - The Smile that Wins - Jeeves and the Song of Songs - The Great Sermon Handicap

Sundays, Dreams, and Souvenirs is a book of joys, sorrows, searching, praying, and loving. It is a book of the sharing of insights of childhood and adulthoodall merged into one as a whole. There are reflections on growing upon being a child, on learning as an adult, and the lessons of childhood . . . again. We are all travelers on this journey called life. We bring along with us the souvenirs from the pastthe joyous days of childhood, and running free, the adult years. Looking back, the pain of rejection and heartbreak; the poignant love of family; the lessons learned in giving, in praying, in hoping, in witnessing death and dying, only to emerge into a newness of life; in witnessing life in all its beauty, in all its trauma and joy; but always keeping our eyes on the love of God, the love of family, and the dreams that we keep in our heart, which can see us through the challenges of life at every turn. We need to trust God in these pages, to open up to a world that can be and is really within each of our grasps. It is a world of wonder, awe, and beauty, but also one of painstaking trust in giving to God each moment of our lives, to the Creator who formed us in our mothers womb, and to give him back a life of tenacity and strength and total joy. Jeff Bradley wrote, The magic of the next word . . . infinite possibilities. We too can find this as we turn the page.
