Something Fresh is a story about, among other things, a scarab. And not just any scarab: A Cheops of the Fourth Dynasty!
When the absentminded Earl of Emsworth pockets the prize piece of Mr. J. Preston Peters’ collection of scarabs, he sets in motion an adventure that only the wonderful world of Blandings Castle could house. Mr. Peters offers a lucrative reward to Mr. Ashe Marson to retrieve the scarab. Unbeknownst to him, his daughter Aline has hired Joan Valentine to do the same. Also at Blandings is George Emerson, who wants to marry Aline. But Aline is engaged to Lord Emsworth’s son, the Honorable Freddie Threepwood, who fears that Joan is going to sue him for breach of promise. In all of this, of course, no one can take a step without tripping over Lord Emsworth’s secretary, the Efficient Baxter.

A Blandings novel This is the first Blandings novel, in which P.G. Wodehouse introduces us to the delightfully dotty Lord Emsworth, his bone-headed younger son, the Hon. Freddie Threepwood, his long-suffering secretary, the Efficient Baxter, and Beach the Blandings butler.
As Wodehouse wrote, ‘without at least one impostor on the premises, Blandings Castle is never itself’. In Something Fresh there are two, each with an eye on a valuable scarab which Lord Emsworth has acquired without quite realizing how it came into his pocket. But of course things get a lot more complicated than this...About the Author:
Sir Pelham Grenville (P.G.) Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English author and playwright and one of the premier humorists of the twentieth century. His inimitable prose, in the words of Evelyn Waugh, “has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” Wodehouse’s hundreds of written works include the masterful Jeeves & Wooster and Blandings Castle stories.
