"[Blandings] is an entire world unto itself and, one senses, Wodehouse pours into it his deepest feelings for England." Stephen FryThe Honourable Galahad Threepwood has decided to write his memoira tell-all that could destroy polite society. Everyone wants this manuscript gone, particularly Lord Emsworth’s neighbor Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe, who would do anything to keep the story of the prawns buried in the past. But the memoir isn’t the only problem. A chorus girl disguised as an heiress, a double-dealing detective, a stolen prize-winning sow, and a crazy ex-secretary are only a few of the complications that must be dealt with before everyone can have their happy ending.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The stories of Blandings castle show Wodehouse at his most lyrical, a man in love with the world. Have you ever been in a building with translucent stone walls? This novel reminds me of that: it has the bones of a light comedy, but one suffused by an external radiance.
Before I converted, I never would have thought I would actually like it! Now I can't stop.
