    Good post, Stu! Thanks for taking us away, however momentarily, from the present Booker fervor. I read and like Howard’s End a while ago.

    I had to go and find out how far back the Booker prize really goes ;-).

    I read “Howard’s End” eons ago, and have read some Wodehouse but not that one. Not sure Prester John stood the test of time, never heard of the author.

    It does make one think how many Booker Prize short listers (and even winners) really do stand the test of time!

    Love it! I think that cover of Psmith is wonderful – even better than the new editions.
