Publisher's Summary

Contained here are nine glorious episodes from the idyllic world of Wodehouse. There's a crime wave that was to rock Blandings Castle to its foundations which broke out towards the middle of a fine summer afternoon; Ukridge appears on Corky's doorstep at three in the morning, wearing his yellow mackintosh and requesting a whisky and soda; while the Oldest Member warns of the folly of driving into the father of the girl you love.

"A brilliantly funny writer, perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." (The Times [London])

Nigel Lambert Makes Wodehouse Come Alive

I've enjoyed reading P. G. Wodehouse, but listening to Nigel Lambert flawlessly personify all the characters was a far superior experience. As a collection of short stories, Lambert has to create voices for a large number of characters, since the cast changes from story to story. He seems to be channeling Wodehouse himself.

Well worth your time.
