The uncle in question is Frederick Altamount Cornwallis, Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred, an old boy of such a sunny and youthful nature that explosions of sweetness and light detonate all around him (in the course, it must be said, of a plot that involves blackmail, impersonation, knock-out drops, stealing, arrests and potential jewel-smuggling).

This is Wodehouse at his very best, with sundered lovers, explorers, broke publishers and irascible aristocrats all eventually yielding to the magic, ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous touch of Uncle Fred. It is, as Richard Usborne writes, 'a brilliantly sustained rattle of word-perfect dialogue and narrative topping a very complicated and well-controlled plot'.

Review:

"The gold standard of English wit ... There is not, and never will be, anything to touch him Christopher Hitchens" (Christopher Hitchens)

"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him John Humphrys" (John Humphrys)

"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" (Susan Hill)

From the Publisher:

·"Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in." EVELYN WAUGH
