Others are hilarious jeux d-esprit such as Woody Allens The Whore of Mensa or Punch editor Alan Corens Body and Soul.Classic cases of misunderstanding and mistaken identity form novelists Tom Sharpe and Evelyn Waugh contrast with the real-life drama of actor Peter Ustinovs extraordinary singing lessons!No comedy collection would be complete without its complement of clownish characters. Starring in this humorous parade are Spike Milligans loony Irish namesake, Richard Gordons hapless medical students, and the inimitable Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves, combining to defeat the wiles of rapacious spinsters and Gorgon-like aunts.From Hollywood cracksters to renowned satirists, from rumbustrious farce to subtle irony, this anthology has something for everyone, making it a pleasure to dip into and a source of delight and diversion for all tastes, moods and ages.Tom Sharpe, P.G.
