Publisher's Summary

If Lord Ickenham had not succumbed to the temptation to dislodge the hat of Beefy Bastable, the irascible QC, with a well-aimed Brazil nut, the latter's famous legal mind might never have been stimulated to literature. But the incident provoked Beefy to write his exposé of the younger generation, a novel so shocking that it caused endless repercussions for its hapless author, and sparked off a whole series of outrageous misunderstandings that it would take the inventive talents of Lord Ickenham himself to resolve.

Not Uncle Fred's Finest

Uncle Fred is a favorite of mine, but this story doesn't zing like most of Wodehouse's work. I had trouble feeling that the characters were really strongly motivated to fulfill their mission, and the whole thing just sort of limped along, like a string quartet playing a familiar piece but a little out of tune, a little off pace. -- So maybe this isn't where to start or finish your Wodehouse obsession. It will do in a pinch, but minus that madcap high jinx we've come to love
