I thought fellow Wodehouse fans might want to know about the current competition held by The Book Depository. You can win all 70 of the hardback Everyman editions of P.G. Wodehouse's novels if you answer their (fairly easy) three questions. The competition is open until the end of March.

Has everyone here already found the Random Wodehouse Quote Generator?

Every time you refresh the page you get a new quotation from his stories. It's usually just a sentence or two, showcasing his charmingly odd descriptions and the bits of dialogue that most authors could not plausibly set up their characters to deliver.

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?
