“I don’t mind telling you that, in the fullness of time, I believe this is going to spread a good deal of sweetness and light.”
The Indiscretions of Archie (1921)
Around this time every year, I post a few suggestions for anyone looking to give the gift of Wodehouse at Christmas.
For new readers and those still working their way through Wodehouse’s substantial output, there is much to choose from. Try this reading guide if you’re looking for suggestions.
But this year I’d like to do things a little differently and ask you.
What’s on your Wodehouse wish list?
Please let us know via the comments below.
Self and cat are keen to spread some Wodehouse sweetness and light ourselves this year, so you never know your luck…
May all your wishes come true
‘You remember that old song, Spread a little happiness. Let’s sing it, shall we?’
‘Okay. I don’t recall the words too well. I’ll have to go tum-tum-tum a bit.’
‘Tum-tum-tum to your heart’s content. It’s the spirit that matters. Ready?’
‘Then let’s get down to it.’
They got down to it.The Girl in Blue (1970)
