Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Blandings Castle, where life in the country is anything but relaxing. The Earl of Emsworth would love to spend his days by the side of his prize-winning sow, the Empress of Blandings. Unfortunately for him, snobby sisters, crazy secretaries, prying detectives, and a pushy publishing magnate are all ready to disturb the peace of Blandings Castle. Newly repackaged with beautiful new covers created by a group of talented young artists are four novels and one short story collection (Blandings Castle). The gardens of Blandings Castle are that original garden from which we are all exiled. All those who know them long to return. Evelyn Waugh I envy those who ve never read him before the prospect of reams of unread Wodehouse stretching out in front of you is . . . something which is enticing to contemplate. Tony Blair

Synopsis:

"P.G. Wodehouse is still the funniest writer ever to have put words on paper." --Hugh Laurie

Synopsis:

Ronald Psmith ("the 'p' is silent, as in pshrimp") is always willing to help a damsel in distress. So when he sees Eve Halliday without an umbrella during a downpour, he nobly offers her an umbrella, even though it's one he picks out of the Drone Club's umbrella rack. Psmith is so besotted with Eve that, when Lord Emsworth, her new boss, mistakes him for Ralston McTodd, a poet, Psmith pretends to be him so he can make his way to Blandings Castle and woo her. And so the farce begins: criminals disguised as poets with a plan to steal a priceless diamond necklace, a secretary who throws flower pots through windows, and a nighttime heist that ends in gunplay. How will everything be sorted out? Leave it to Psmith!
