Publisher's Summary

The ivied walls of Blandings Castle have seldom glowed as sunnily as in these wonderful stories - but there are snakes in the rolling parkland ready to nip Clarence, the absent-minded Ninth Earl of Emsworth, when he least expects it.For a start the Empress of Blandings, in the running for her first prize in the Fat Pigs Class at the Shropshire Agricultural Show, is off her food ­- and can only be coaxed back to the trough by a call in her own language. Then there is the feud with Head Gardener McAllister, aided by Clarence's sister, the terrifying Lady Constance, and the horrible prospect of the summer fête - twin problems solved by the arrival of a delightfully rebellious little girl from London. But first of all there is the vexed matter of the custody of the pumpkin.
Skipping an ocean and a continent, Wodehouse also treats us to some unputdownable stories of excess from the monstrous Golden Age of Hollywood.

Wodehouse at his best.

Hilarious vintage Wodehouse, superbly rendered by James Saxon. The stories had me chortling, and Saxon's readings just hit the spot. Superb stuff.

disappointing

I misrakenly thought all the stories would be based at Blandings with the usual cast of wonderful characters. However many of the tales related to adventures in the US with less interesting individuals. I would not have chosen this one had I realised. Good narrator.
