P.G. Wodehouse entices us into the demesne of Blandings Castle - an apparent paradise where it is eternal high summer, with jolly parties, tea on the lawn and love trysts in the rose garden. But for Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, there is always something to disturb this tranquil scene.

PG Wodehouse was born in Guildford, Surrey, in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. He was created a Knight of the British Empire in 1975 and died on St. Valentine's Day in the same year at the age of ninety-three. His novels are translated into every language and are frequently adapted for radio and television. In Jeeves and Wooster he created two of the best known and best loved characters in twentieth century literature.Review:
"Each time you read another Blandings story, the sublime nature of that world is such as to make you gasp" * Stephen Fry * "It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" * John Humphrys * "A genius ... Elusive, delicate but lasting" * Alan Ayckbourn * "Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" * Susan Hill * "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 *
