When Gussie Fink-Nottle, after a convivial evening with “Catsmeat” Pinbright, was sentenced to fourteen days for wading in the fountain at Trafalgar Square, Bertie Wooster saw the red light. For Gussie was an expected guest at Deverill Hall, and clearly his enforced absence would give rise to immediate inquiries. From this point it would be but a short step to a complete revelation of the scandalous details of his escapade, and Bertram well knew what would be the effect of this intelligence on Gussie’s fiancée, Madeline. As always when a rift appeared in her love affairs, Madeline would transfer her simpering affection to Bertram, and the grim prospect of having to endure the grand passion of this female stimulated Bertie to the sternest of endeavors to forestall catastrophe. But as usual, Bertie’s involvement causes further entanglement, which only Jeeves can unravel.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The undisputed master of farce is in top form in this giddy novel of romantic intrigue, social mayhem, and aristocratic absurdities.” Spectator (London)
“The comical story is pure Wodehouse…With Jeeves’ sage council, all is put right in the end.” Publishers Weekly
“Wodehouse is one of the best and most accessible humorists for audio adaptation and this version does not disappoint. Reader Frederick Davidson has made superciliousness into an art form…His command of class, age, and gender variations is without peer.” Library Journal
“Davidson, who performs so often impeccably for Blackstone, gives a well-rendered, vocalized reading of this delightful novel in the Bertram Wooster chronicles.”  Kliatt

Author Bio: P. G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
