Follow the adventures of Bertie Wooster and his gentleman's gentleman, Jeeves, in this stunning new edition of one of the greatest comic novels in the English language. Steeple Bumphleigh is a very picturesque place. But for Bertie Wooster, it is a place to be avoided, containing not only the appalling Aunt Agatha but also her husband, the terrifying Lord Worplesdon. So when a certain amount of familial arm-twisting is applied, Bertie heads for the sticks in fear and trepidation despite the support of the irreplaceable Jeeves.

In some ways, Bertie and Jeeves are in a time warp-- the language, the classist sensibilities.

Yet the farcical conceits are so ridiculous and so predictably formulaic (in a good way), that Joy in the Morning, like many other titles in this series, entertains.

A sampling: "Winged creatures of the night came bumping into the old face and bumping off again, while others used the back stretches of my neck as a skating rink ..."
