Publisher Description

On doctor's orders, Bertie Wooster retires to sample the bucolic delights of Maiden Eggesford. But his idyll is rudely shattered by Aunt Dahlia who wants him to nobble a racehorse. Similar blots on Bertie's horizon come in the shape of Major Plank, the African explorer, Vanessa Cook, proud beauty and "molder of men," and Orlo Porter who seems to have nothing else to do but think of sundering Bertie's head from his body.

"Bertie Wooster and his butler Jeeves retire to the countryside after Bertie gets doctor's orders to relax and give up smoking, drinking and late nights. Unfortunately, the country proves anything but relaxing with jealous fiances, purloined cats and other intrigues. "

Quotes

  • “Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists.”

    — Susan Hill, praise for the author
  • “For those familiar with Wodehouse and Jeeves, Aunts Aren’t Gentlemen will serve up some good chuckles—it’s light-hearted reading, especially on a dreary afternoon. Wodehouse aficionados will relish revisiting with Bertie, Aunt Dahlia, and Jeeves and adding this handsome volume to their collection. For me, it definitely was a nice trip down Memory L.”

  • “It’s dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I’ll risk it with him.”

    — John Humphrys, English author and journalist, praise for the author
  • “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, Irish novelist, praise for the author

    " Some funny parts. I enjoyed waiting for the other shoe to drop, which it did almost every chapter. This is my first book by Wodehouse and I'll probably read more but not by any mean all. "
