EVERYMAN'S LATEST RELEASES
This Spring, we publish the last three titles in our P G Wodehouse collection, Louder and Funnier, The Prince and Betty, and Sunset at Blandings.
Our Spring classics list includes a new edition of The Book of Evidence and The Sea by John Banville, published together for the first time and newly introduced by Adam Phillips, as well as three novels by Samuel Beckett: Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable, published together in one volume.
Last but not least is our beautiful new Pocket Poets anthology, Measure for Measure. Edited by Annie Finch and Alexandra Oliver, this is a one-of-a-kind celebration of metrical verse.
Louder and Funnier
P G Wodehouse
In these articles first produced for magazines and substantially rewritten for book publication, Wodehouse reveals his enduring brilliance as a comic writer of topical essays.
Measure for Measure: An Anthology of Poetic Metres
Edited by Annie Finch and Alexandra Oliver
This comprehensive and joyous celebration of metrical verse brings together some of the best rhythmic lines in literature.
The Book of Evidence, The Sea
Introduced by Adam Phillips
'No one since Proust has been netter able to recover the charged and dreamy atmospheres of what seems to be childhood.' - Adam Phillips
'Munificent in its own mischievous, mortally serious way, The Sea by John Banville brought new tidings of this arch-stylist's gifts, and won timely recognition of them.' - Seamus Heaney
Sunset at Blandings
P G Wodehouse
In Wodehouse's final novel, unfinished at his death, the author returns to his favourite part of England.
There may be trouble in the air, but at Blandings Castle it is always summer, and the powers of darkness are always ultimately defeated.
The Prince and Betty
P G Wodehouse
A classic musical comedy plot turned into a novel, The Prince and Betty is the story of a man who gives up everything for his girl.

EVERYMAN'S BOOK OF THE MONTH
Saturday 14 February marked 40 years since the death of P G Wodehouse, who was, by common consent, the most brilliant writer of English comedy in the twentieth century. This anniversary comes just ahead of the completion of our collected Wodehouse edition. After 15 years, and with 99 titles in total, we are thrilled to have brought all of Wodehouse's novels and short stories under one roof.
This anthology includes two novels, fourteen short stories and extracts from Wodehouse’s autobiography. The Code of the Woosters was written in 1938, Uncle Fred in the Springtime in 1939, when Wodehouse was at the height of his powers. The short stories feature all Wodehouse’s most famous creations – Jeeves and Wooster, Ukridge, Bingo Little, Mr Mulliner, the Earls of Emsworth and Ickenham. Finally, extracts from Over Seventy, a memoir as amusing and beautifully written as the novels, offer an insight into the attitudes and working habits of a very private man.
'Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.'
'He exhausts superlatives.'
