Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fall brings season brings three more antic selections from comic genius, P. G. Wodehouse. In Summer Lightning, the Honorable Galahad Threepwood has decided to write his memoirs and everyone dives for cover; meanwhile, Lord Emsworth's prize pig has been stolen, and the castle is abuzz with imposters all pretending to be one another. Psmith in the City finds the inimitable Psmith working at a bank and determined not to let honest toil depress him, and the ten stories in Ukridge revolve around Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge's none-too-successful schemes to make some money.
