E and Roderick Spode now raised to the peerage And Major Brabazon Plank the peppery explorer who wants to lay Bertie out coldThank goodness for the intervention of Chief Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard but is this gentleman all he seem PG Wodehouse’s ‘Stiff Upper Lip Jeeves’ was published on the 22nd of March 1963 That’s the very day that The Beatles released their first album ‘Please Please Me’ and exactly the same day John Profumo stood up in The Houses of Parliament to deny having relations with Christine Keener It was the year Kim Philby fled to Moscow the scandalous divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll Harold McMillan’s resignation JFK’s assassination and the first broadcast of ‘Doctor Who’You will find no hint of any of that within the pages of ‘Stiff Upper Lip Jeeves’Unlike other Wodehouse novels of a later vintage where there’s the occasional odd and jarring references to “ doing the ‘rock’n’roll’” this is a novel completely sealed in aspic It’s not set in a particular fixed time a glorious England of the mind where Britannia still very much ruled the waves and that is a magnificent reality destined to last forever and ever It is Wodehouse world and I can think of no soothing sanctuary for the slings and misfortunes of modern lifeWe’re at Totleigh Towers in the company of Gussie Fink Nottle Madeleine Bassett Sir Watkyn Bassett Roderick Spode or Lord Sidcup to give him his new and proper title a colonial old salt of an explorer named Major Brabazon Plank Stinker Pinker Stiffy Byng and her Aberdeen Terrier who – like all of his breed – looks at one “ as if they were in the pulpit of the church of some particularly strict Scottish sect and you were a parishioner of dubious reputation sitting in the front row of the stalls” All very familiar stuff then; while the plot – as one might expect – is full of comic misunderstandings sundered hearts and Bertie goggling for all he’s worthCompared to some of the mastery that went before in the Wooster books this is merely an immensely charming and incredibly funny novel not a work of staggering genius But obviously I’m being unfair as what could possibly match ‘The Code of the Woosters’ or ‘Right Ho Jeeves’? In its own way ‘Stiff Upper Lip Jeeves’ is an absolutely perfect pleasure A contemporaneous novel less concerned with the events of the 1960s it would be difficult to locate but a better antidote to the craziness of the modern world it must surely be impossible to find
