When Gussie Fink-Nottle, after a convivial evening with “Catsmeat” Pinbright, was sentenced to fourteen days for wading in the fountain at Trafalgar Square, Bertie Wooster saw the red light. For Gussie was an expected guest at Deverill Hall, and clearly his enforced absence would give rise to immediate inquiries. From this point it would be but a short step to a complete revelation of the scandalous details of his escapade, and Bertram well knew what would be the effect of this intelligence on Gussie’s fiancée, Madeline. As always when a rift appeared in her love affairs, Madeline would transfer her simpering affection to Bertram, and the grim prospect of having to endure the grand passion of this female stimulated Bertie to the sternest of endeavors to forestall catastrophe. But as usual, Bertie’s involvement causes further entanglement, which only Jeeves can unravel.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The undisputed master of farce is in top form in this giddy novel of romantic intrigue, social mayhem, and aristocratic absurdities.”

    Spectator (London)

  • “The comical story is pure Wodehouse…With Jeeves’ sage council, all is put right in the end.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Wodehouse is one of the best and most accessible humorists for audio adaptation and this version does not disappoint. Reader Frederick Davidson has made superciliousness into an art form…His command of class, age, and gender variations is without peer.”

    Library Journal

  • “Davidson, who performs so often impeccably for Blackstone, gives a well-rendered, vocalized reading of this delightful novel in the Bertram Wooster chronicles.” 


Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Scott | 2/19/2014

    " Would-be writers of farce, take copious notes. Throw Wodehouse's meticulous plotting and breezy comedic narration against the backdrop of a miserable local talent show, and comedy cannot fail to ensue on every page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by David Williamson | 2/15/2014

    " Gosh! I did rather enjoy this, although not my normal piffle, I will be looking for another Jeeves and Wooster adventure in future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mister | 2/14/2014

    " Are they all the same, are they all different? They're all good, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rebecca Douglass | 2/13/2014

    " Great fun as always. Not enough Jeeves for top ratings, though he does make a strong appearance in the final chapters. "
