In Pigs Have Wings, affably potty Lord Emsworth is embroiled in a fierce pig-rearing battle with his obese neighbour, Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe. Tossed in for good measure: romantic entanglements, some dubious detective work and a fearful dieting product called 'Slimmo'.

Blandings is also never complete without the resourcefulness of canny Gally Threepwood, the staunchness of 'man mountain' butler Beach and the stentorian tones of Lady Constance ringing around its batty corridors (there's even an imposter or two). Naturally a pig-napping is afoot, but who will have the last oink? Download and start listening now!

    " I love Wodehouse, and for whatever reason, this just didn't take off with me like nearly every other one of his books has. A winner for diehards, not my first recommendation for a Wodehouse virgin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 12/1/2010

    " I didn't find it to be as funny as others said it was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 10/25/2010

    " Pigs, sisters, brothers, guests, butlers, and secretaries. Lord Emworth will never have any peace! Another too soon over magic carpet ride through P.G. Wodehouses world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Warrior | 10/9/2010

    " Excellent humorous dialogue throughout "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Radka | 8/30/2010

    " Probably my most favourite Wodehouse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/1/2010

    " This is one of the funniest books I've ever read! I found the the folly of carting a prize pig around in a luxery car especially amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joni | 1/27/2010

    " PG Wodehouse just gets funnier and funnier to me! This was too much fun. I must remember to be on the lookout for a butler - they seem handy to have around in any situation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 12/22/2009

    " Lord Emsworth, Galahad, assorted likable young characters pining gently for each other, sparkling prose, and the Empress of Blandings -- the ingredients for another delightful Wodehouse concoction... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 12/12/2009

    " A humorous account of one eccentric family's efforts to win the Shropshire fattest pig contest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas | 11/7/2009

    " All Wodehouse is of course good, but this one is a cut above. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 7/21/2009

    " I love Lord Emsworth, though we see more of his brother, the Hon. Galahad Threepwood, in this excellent novel than we do of the Earl. Wodehouse farce at its best. "

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
