Summary/My Thoughts (all in one!):

My Man Jeeves is a collection of 8 short stories. In four of them, we are once again with our good friend Bertie and, you guessed it, his man Jeeves. Bertie has been banished to New York City by his Aunt Agatha and is living the good life in America. But his knack for getting mixed-up in the problems of others follows him across the pond.

The other four stories involve Reggie Pepper who I understand is an early prototype of Bertie Wooster. Reggie is just as good at getting caught up in his friends’ drama as Bertie but we are missing the Jeeves element from these stories. I enjoyed these stories but I’m glad Wodehouse got on with it and created Bertie and Jeeves for us.

There isn’t much to say about this collection that hasn’t been said about any of the Jeeves’ books. They are delightful. They are hilarious. They should be read and enjoyed by all. That is all.
