Piquant excerpts lifted from Touchstone editors' own reading & listening.



The Glossop method is based on the patient being given an excess of whatever it is he most desires—as it may be alcohol or the companionship of the opposite sex or, as in Lord Bittlesham's case, food. The patient will eventually revolt at the sheer immoderation of it and voluntarily deny himself. . . . It's theoretically impeccable, Bertie, and extremely popular.

P. G. Wodehouse
Jeeves and Wooster, television screenplay (1990-1993)
