Jeeves Omnibus: P G Wodehouse
Impossible to pick a single Wodehouse book, hence an Omnibus. The Blandings Omnibus would be equally fitting for this list. Another teenage staple for me. Don't know how I started with him. I think it's his perfection of style, the comic timing, that is so irresistable: not so much the plots and obviously not the characters. All the books on writing in the world, all the creative writing courses could never manufacture a Wodehouse. A genius.
