Publisher's Summary

This is the first Blandings novel, in which P.G. Wodehouse introduces us to the delightfully dotty Lord Emsworth, his bone-headed younger son, the Hon. Freddie Threepwood, his log-suffering secretary, the Efficient Baxter, and Beach the Blandings butler.
As Wodehouse wrote, 'without at least one imposter on the premises, Blandings Castle is never itself'. In Something Fresh there are two, each with an eye on a valuable Egyptian amulet which Lord Emsworth has acquired without quite realizing how it came into his pocket. But of course things get a lot more complicated than this...


What the Critics Say

"Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever." (Douglas Adams)
"For Wodehouse there has been no fall of Man....The gardens of Blandings Castle are the original gardens of Eden from which we are all exiled." (Evelyn Waugh)

I am a huge fan of P G Wodehouse, and thought that I had devoured all of his books which were available in audio format. However, when I came across this one I realised that I had missed the jewel of the collection. Something Fresh is, in my opinion, Wodehouse's most enchanting book. The name really says it all; listen and be delighted!

Can't beat it for a bit of a lighthearted frivolous read!

If you love Bertie Worcester and Jeeves then you'll love this too! Just as silly and fun. 😂
