Blandings is now a major BBC One television series starring Jennifer Saunders and Timothy Spall.
Unwelcome guests are descending on Blandings Castle - particularly the overbearing Duke of Dunstable, who settles in the Garden Suite with no intention of leaving, and Lady Constance, Lord Emsworth's sister and a lady of firm disposition, who arrives unexpectedly from New York. Skulduggery is also afoot involving the sale of a modern nude painting (mistaken by Lord Emsworth for a pig). It's enough to take the noble earl on the short journey to the end of his wits.
Luckily Clarence's brother Galahad Threepwood, cheery survivor of the raffish Pelican Club, is on hand to set things right, restore sundered lovers and even solve all the mysteries.
It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him
For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day
Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already
The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!
Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists
