Sebastian Faulks is to write a new Jeeves and Wooster novel, expanding the humorous series written by P G Wodehouse, with the title commissioned by the author's estate.
Hutchinson will publish the new novel, Jeeves and the Wedding Bells, on 6th November.
No. No. No. There are enough Jeeves and Wooster novels. There are even a few very nice Jeeves and Wooster-inspired novels that manage to bring something original to the conversation. But Faulks, who has written a few very good novels, also wrote a not-very-good James Bond thriller a while ago. Apparently, he's now just wearing the skin of dead authors all the time, like some sort of creepy serial killer. What an awful idea this is.
