Publisher's Summary

Contained here are nine glorious episodes from the idyllic world of Wodehouse. There's a crime wave that was to rock Blandings Castle to its foundations which broke out towards the middle of a fine summer afternoon; Ukridge appears on Corky's doorstep at three in the morning, wearing his yellow mackintosh and requesting a whisky and soda; while the Oldest Member warns of the folly of driving into the father of the girl you love.

What the Critics Say

"A brilliantly funny writer, perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." (The Times [London])
"In this superb volume of short stories featuring some of his favorite characters, Nigel Lambert sounds as if Wodehouse himself directed him. His timing is flawless, his characterizations masterful....This is a great comic interpreting the work of a great humorist." (AudioFile)

Unmissable

I've always been a big fan of the dramatised PG Wodehouse audiobooks, but Nigel Lambert does an equally brilliant job portraying dozens of different characters, from doddery Lord Emsworth to forceful Lady Constance, taking in numerous nieces and ne-er do wells along the way with apparent effortlessness. The stories are a summery delight. Fans of Wodehouse should definitely not miss this.
