9780099514091: The Luck of the Bodkins

A P.G. Wodehouse novel

Seize this wonderful chance to embark on a Wodehousian voyage on the luxurious liner S.S. Atlantic - in the company of Monty Bodkin, whose passion for Gertrude Butterwick knows no bounds (except those set by the wild-at-heart Hollywood starlet Lotus Blossom and her pet alligator). Also aboard are a movie mogul, the centre-forward for the All-England ladies hockey team and the two Tennyson brothers (one of whom has been mistaken for the late poet laureate and given a fat movie contract...). Also a chatty steward, and a mouse doll in which all manner of things can be hidden. This hilarious comic novel is Wodehouse at full sail - a voyage of pure delight.

Review:

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

"For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" ( Marian Keyes)

"Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" ( Lynne Truss)

"The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" ( Kate Mosse)

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

Book Description:

'You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.' Stephen Fry
