Publisher's Summary

One of the very best in the popular Blandings series, set in that idyllic Shropshire countryside, where the sun always shines. Comedy centres around Clarence, the dotty ninth Earl of Emsworth, doting on his prize pig: The Empress. His brother Galahad fears her fate is under threat with Clarence's rival Sir Gregory Parsloe. Parsloe is aiming to prevent her taking the County Prize. He lives in fear of Galahad publishing his memoirs and revealing their wild younger days. Lady Constance too is determined to stop their publication, and soon Blandings Castle is full of thieves, and also some romance. Clarence's fesity niece Millicent and gorgeous chorus girl Sue are also on site!

Joy Unalloyed

Summer Lightening is a pure and unadulterated pleasure to listen to - P.G. Wodehouse at his most engaging best. I smiled my way through the narrative (and it IS beautifully and skillfully narrated), and sometimes was in danger of crashing the car because I was so engaged with the story, and so amused! I highly recommend this comic tale of intrigue, imposters and slightly dotty characters. I was regretful when it ended, and wanted to start listening all over again!
