I've just started reading Bachelors Anonymous. It shows Wodehouse's usual deftness with language, but overall I find I prefer his short stories to his novels. The fluffy whimsy which makes his style so much fun works fine in shorter, simpler plots, but I have trouble suspending that much disbelief and keeping track of a larger cast in the longer works.

What are your Wodehouse favorites?

I adore Jeeves & Wooster, but have a real soft spot for the Blandings books - I'm not sure just why they appeal to me so much, but that's where I start when I'm craving comfort reading

Practically any of his Jeeves and Wooster short stories, really. I can't seem to get into his novels.
