Right Ho, Jeeves! by PG WodehouseRead about another entry on the list.
One of the joys of reading the Jeeves and Wooster stories, is that whatever terrible mess Bertie Wooster might have landed in, you know that his butler, Jeeves, will, without any apparent effort, quietly sort the whole thing out before the end of the story. It’s that trust - that all will, in the end, be well - that makes stories with guardian angels such a comforting read.
Right Ho, Jeeves is among six books that made a difference to Kazuo Ishiguro and John Mullan's top ten disastrous performances in literature.
