Trapped in Steeple Bumpleigh, a lesser man than Bertie Wooster would have given way. Ex-fiancee Florence Cray is present, as is "Stilton" Cheesewright, her new fiance. But the biggest blot on the landscape has to be Edwin the Boy Scout whose acts of kindness resembled those of sheer malevolence.

You should read Wodehouse when you re well, and when you re poorly; when you re travelling, and when you re not; when you re feeling clever, and when you re feeling utterly dim. Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already. --Lynne Truss"
You don t analyze such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendor. --Stephen Fry"
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"
The works of Wodehouse continue on their unique way, unmarked by the passage of time. --Kingsley Amis"
Wodehouse is the funniest writer that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced. "
A brilliantly funny writer perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced. "

"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)
