Publisher's Summary

In the Angler’s Rest, drinking hot scotch and lemon, sits one of Wodehouse’s greatest raconteurs. Mr. Mulliner, his vivid imagination lubricated by Miss Postlethwaite the barmaid, has fabulous stories to tell of the extraordinary behavior of his far-flung family....
One of them concerns Wilfred, who lights on the formula for Buck-U-Uppo, a tonic given to elephants to enable them to face tigers with the necessary nonchalance. Its explosive effects on a shy young curate and then the higher clergy are gravely revealed....

Mulliner is worth meeting

A terrific selection of stories that are classic Wodehouse. I particularly liked "The Bishop's Move" - found it to be uproariously funny in a quirky kind of way. Jonathan Cecil's voice characterizations are masterful, and highly entertaining. Cecil squeezes every nuance of satire and humor out of the stories - a true artist that helps you understand the genius of the author.

Love the Mulliner Stories

What did you love best about Meet Mr. Mulliner?

These P.G. Wodehouse stories are not as well known as Bertie and Jeeves, but they are hilarious just the same. The convention of beginning each story at the Anglers' Rest, a pub near fishing, brings to mind


What other book might you compare Meet Mr. Mulliner to and why?

Any P.G. Wodehouse read by Jonathan Cecil.


Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cecil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He is my favorite narrator. This one seemed a little flatter than the others, but nonetheless
excellent.

The tales that are told at the Anglers' Rest.
