When the doctor advises Bertie to live the quiet life, he and Jeeves head for the pure air and peace of Maiden Eggesford. However, they hadn't reckoned on Bertie's irrepressible but decidedly scheming Aunt Dahlia, around whom an imbroglio of impressive proportions develops involving The Cat Which Kept Popping Up When Least Expected. As Bertie observes, whatever aunts are, they are Not gentlemen.

P G Wodehouse was born in Guildford in 1881. He was a prolific writer who, in Jeeves and Wooster, created two of the most popular characters of the 20th Century. He was created a Knight of the British Empire in 1975 and said in a BBC interview that he had no ambitions left now that he had been knighted and there was waxwork of him in Madame Tussauds. He died that same year, aged 93, on St Valentine's Day.Review:
"Could a P.G. Wodehouse revival be more timely? Overlook Press, which is reissuing Wodehouse's comic novels, clearly has its finger on America's pulse....With its sumptuously bound editions, Overlook Press has done the master proud." -Los Angeles Times
"All one can do is read [the Wodehouse books] is read them and laugh like an idiot. To assist you in this, the Overlook Press is publishing a set of clothbound collector's editions of the master's work. They're beautiful books, much welcome." -Bookforum
