Description
The ivied walls of Blandings Castle have seldom glowed as sunnily as in the half-dozen stories here by the creator of Jeeves & Wooster—but alas, there are metaphorical snakes in the countryside ready to nip at Clarence, the absent-minded Ninth Earl of Emsworth, when he least expects it. For a start, the Empress of Blandings, in the running for first prize in the Fat Pigs Class at the Shropshire Agricultural Show, is off her feed. Then there is the feud with Head Gardener McAllister (aided by Clarence's sister, the terrifying Lady Constance), as well as the vexing matter of the custody of the pumpkin. Here too are five tales of the Mulliners, from the monstrous Golden Age of Hollywood, and the Bobbie Wickham story, "Mr. Potter Takes a Rest Cure." Best known as the creator of Jeeves—the impossibly wise, supremely well-mannered gentleman's gentleman—and Wooster, his unflaggingly affable but bumbling employer, P.G. Wodehouse invokes the very British spirit of a bygone era in a gentle satire that, as Evelyn Waugh puts it, "satisfies the most sophisticated taste and the simplest."

"Each time you read another Blandings story, the sublime nature of that world is such as to make you gasp."—Stephen Fry
