Mr Mulliner is one of PG Wodehouse's less well-known creations but he deserves as much recognition as Jeeves and Wooster. A strange combination of pub bore and fantasist, he whiles away his time in the Angler's Rest spinning unbelievable yarns for his fellow drinkers, all of which he insists are true. Honeysuckle Cottage, the first story in this collection, is a hilarious tale of a house haunted by a writer of romantic fiction; I also really enjoyed Buck-u-Uppo, about a meek young curate whose life is transformed when he accidentally drinks a miracle cordial meant for elephants. All the stories are well acted, especially Mr Mulliner himself, played by the late great Richard Griffiths. Since I bought this title, I have listened to it at least once a week; it never fails to make me laugh.

I would thoroughly recommend these stories to all PGW fans. Less well known than young Bertie’s, The Angler’s Rest customers, Mrs. P and Mr. M are equally as funny. More PGW genius and perfectly dramatised.
