9780140009958: Summer Lightning

Once a man of the Hon. Galahad Threepwood's calibre and reputation starts taking pen in hand and writing Reminiscences, the nobility and gentry of all England recall past follies committed in his company and tremble.

All rally to prevent their publication, and the consequences prove somewhat unusual: Lord Emsworth's prize-winning sow, Empress of Blandings, is kidnapped; yet another imposter is introduced into the ancestral home; and once again Blandings Castle proves too much for the Efficient Baxter.

Product Description:

Summer Lightning

Review:

"To have one of his books in your hand is to possess by way of a pill that can relieve anxiety, rageiness, or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour. Paper has rarely been put to better use than printing Wodehouse." (Caitlin Moran)

"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists. His world is perfect, his writing is perfect. What more is there to be said?" (Susan Hill)

"P. G. Wodehouse is the gold standard of English wit." (Christopher Hitchens)

"An incomparable and timeless genius." (Kate Mosse)

"P. G. Wodehouse should be prescribed to treat depression. Cheaper, more effective than valium and far, far more addictive." (Olivia Williams)
