Wodehouse dishes up non-stop hilarity in this classic quagmire featuring birdbrained Bertie Wooster and his astute butler, Reginald Jeeves. When Gussie Fink-Nottle lands in the slammer, Bertie poses as his pal in order to keep Madeline Bassett at bay. After all, no one knows Bertie at Deverill Hall. Corky’s dog, covert couples, five crackpot aunts, and a concert in costume increase the confusion. Captain Dobbs descends on Deverill to arrest a greenbearded burglar with a bonding hound—but who was the man in the checked suit? It’s Jeeves to the rescue again as he appears undercover to save nitwit Wooster from Fink-Nottle’s fate.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The undisputed master of farce is in top form in this giddy novel of romantic intrigue, social mayhem, and aristocratic absurdities. Top flight, one of the funniest…The pace is terrific!”

    Spectator

  • “It’s hard to imagine anyone better than Jonathan Cecil at reading P. G. Wodehouse…No matter who’s speaking, Cecil sounds like he was born to deliver each part. Listening to him as the deadpan genius butler Jeeves is like listening to a perfect character actor.”

    " If you like Wodehouse, this one's a corker. Read with perfection by Jonathan Cecil. "

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.
