”The Inimitable Jeeves” from the early 20th century is a collection of stories featuring the beloved character Jeeves. Considered the definition of a perfect valet, Jeeves answers to his master, the wealthy English gentleman Bertie Wooster. Although always looking out for Bertie, Jeeves has a will of his own that often leads him into sticky and humorous situations. The stories have inspired several television adaptations, including ”The World of Wooster” (1965-67), an English comedy television series and you can now hear the classic stories brought to life by B.J. Harrison.
B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.
P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975), born Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, was a British author and one of the most prominent humorists of the 20th century. His memorable characters include the likes of Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves, who appeared in novels such as ”Joy in the Morning” (1946) and ”The Mating Season” (1949). His novels, short stories and musical comedies have been adapted numerous times for the screen and stage. These adaptations include ”Heavy Weather” (1995), a BBC-produced television film based on Wodehouse’s eponymous novel.
